With potholes accounting for a fifth of the UK’s breakdowns, the Observer series asked its readers what roads in the area were the most in need in fixing.
Judy Buckland commented: “Summerfield Road in West Wittering is an accident waiting to happen, the whole side of the road is gone,”
Terminus Road in Chichester and Cormorant Way in East Wittering were also among the list that residents had been most concerned about.
Jeremy Edwardes from Petworth had reported of the potholes on Pound Street in the town and had West Sussex Highways contact him after his initial report, however no action, he said, had been done to address the road in question.
West Sussex County Council launched a new system in January of last year to help make reporting of potholes easier but many residents believe that this alone isn’t enough.
Joy Messingham on Facebook commented: “Most of the roads in Chichester are a disgrace.”
