TRIMLEY: Villagers call for pot-holed street action
TRIMLEY: Villagers say their main street is in “a hell of a state” and are calling for its pot-holes to be repaired immediately.
Trimley St Mary Parish Council says High Road has suffered badly over the past winter with ice and frost breaking up its surface and leaving pot-holes and scarring which has made it awful to drive.
The previous winter also took its toll on the busy road, and councillors would like to see the whole stretch resurfaced.
“It’s in a hell of a state and something really needs to be done about it as soon as possible,” said councillor Graham Harding.
“As well as pot-holes, in some places there are big puddles and it really is quite a mess.”
Bryan Frost, former council chairman, said: “The worst affected areas are between Station Road and Gaymers Lane, and outside the Welcome Hall is very bad.
“If there were any funds forthcoming before the end of the financial year, it would be good to have these repaired.”

The council agreed to ask Suffolk County Council to send a surveyor to assess the situation.
County officials are encouraging people to report potholes – on busy roads those about the size of a large dinner plate and two inches deep will be repaired or coned off within 24 hours, while smaller ones will normally be repaired within two weeks.
