The ever present pot holes that have been found under the Gloucester Road bridge in Kidsgrove have finally been filled, however the problem which has brought about these has yet to be addressed.
It appears that following a cyclist having an accident as a result of one of the large pot holes under the Gloucester Road bridge in Kidsgrove, County Councillor Mary Maxfield got Staffordshire County Council to instantly address the initial problem of the pot holes. Both of these holes have now been filled with special tarmac which can be laid under water, however how long this initial repair will last for is anyone’s guess?
It appears that the real problem is the water which is constantly flowing across the road under the Gloucester Road bridge in Kidsgrove. This is has been assessed as being a result of excessive water runoff from some old mine workings. Staffordshire County Council is now investigating what can be done to address the long term problem.
