This is an ongoing problem. The last repair was earlier this year. The first 2 images are of the problem that I reported last week the third image is of what you have appeared to do since my report last week. I am guessing this is not a patch up or indeed a botch up but a temporary remedy prior to doing the job properly, In its current state it won't last five minutes - like all of the patch up you have done in this place over the years. I cycle the cycle path and this is the worst area and has been for years despite constant reports. You might be interested to know I resurfaced the area outside Naturezones at my cost using planins and it seems to be very effective. I am sure planins rollered in would be far better than the stuff you have just chucked into the holes. This is a very busy spot for cyclists and need to be properly leveled. I understand the council has been given government money to improve them as well as extend cycle routes. So I am at a loss why a proper job is not being done. I have even seen people complaining about the terrible state of the Blackwater cycle on Community face book page. cc John Metcalf Suzie Ellis

    This happened over the weekend - as I said it would with the next rainfall. This is now dangerous and with the cycle path getting busy someone is going to get hurt.
