Original repairs are deteriorating

PLEASE can someone tell me when Woodburn Drive is to be made roadworthy after a winter commencing last November?

Pothole repairing appears to be on a piecemeal basis – so spasmodic that even some of the original patches are now deteriorating.

I know money is scarce but this is a busy road and bus route and must be one of the poorest surfaces in Whitley Bay.

For drivers, avoiding the potholes is a slalom and accidents happen on slaloms.

A strange coincidence that speed limits for Whitley Lodge and Woodburn estates are to be lowered to 20mph, may I suggest 5mph would be more appropriate.
