Growing Pothole Problem in Crown Hill Poses Safety Risk to Drivers and Cyclists
As a resident of Crown Hill in Llantwit Fardre, I am becoming increasingly concerned about the growing problem of potholes on our community roads, particularly on Tudor Way and York Drive. Despite numerous complaints to local officials, many of these potholes remain unrepaired, leading to damage to vehicles and posing a safety hazard for drivers and cyclists alike.
The potholes on Tudor Way and York Drive are getting bigger and bigger every day, and it is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. As a driver, hitting a pothole can be a jarring experience, causing damage to my vehicle and making me fear for my safety. For cyclists, the danger is even greater, as hitting a pothole can cause them to lose control and suffer serious injuries.
It is not just a matter of inconvenience or cost. The potholes on Tudor Way and York Drive pose a real danger to our community, and it is the responsibility of the council to ensure our roads are safe and well-maintained. As residents, we are frustrated that our complaints are falling on deaf ears, and that the council is not taking sufficient action to address the problem.
The problem of potholes on community roads is not unique to Crown Hill or Llantwit Fardre, but it is our problem, and it is important that steps are taken to address the issue before it becomes an even greater concern. We need to work together to raise awareness of this issue and put pressure on the council to take action.

It is time for the council to prioritise the safety of our community and take action to repair the potholes on Tudor Way and York Drive. We cannot wait until someone gets hurt before action is taken. We need our roads to be safe for everyone, and it is time for the council to step up and do their part.
