A compensation claim for an injury from an accident caused by a pothole on Stoughton Road can be made by calling Guildford accident claims helpline
The town of Guildford is located in Surrey in England and a pothole-riddled road in town has been causing problems for drivers and cyclists that could potentially lead to compensation claims. Stoughton Road was identified by users of the road and the local council as being difficult to navigate due to its abundance of potholes for some time. The Surrey County Council is responsible for the road and initially planned for resurfacing of the road to take place in the spring of 2014 but the repairs were delayed first to September, then November and now another delay has been made to March 2015.
The Stoughton Road pothole issue was brought to the attention of Surrey County Council by a Guildford Councillor and she has said that she was assured at every highways meeting with them that the resurfacing was on target to take place. County Council responded to the delays by stating that there are design issues that have delayed the resurfacing. They added that the mixture of the tarmac and concrete surface means there are difficult challenges with the road structure so careful design and planning is needed.
The delays have meant that accidents are still happening on the road with the most recent incident occurring when a cyclist’s bike hit a pothole near the cemetery and his bike crashed. A spokesman for the CTC cycling charity has said that potholes can lead to serious and potentially fatal injuries. He continued by stating that fixing individual potholes is a temporary solution and that there should be long-term solutions implemented such as regularly scheduled maintenance.
Surrey Highways plans to resurface hundreds of miles of county roads as part of its Project Horizon scheme and Stoughton Road is a part of this project that will start in March 2015.
