A DISGRUNTLED resident has called for immediate action to be taken to repair a road in Colne which is riddled with potholes.

Mr Francis Kendall told a meeting of Pendle Council’s Colne Committee that Intake Crescent was uneven, full potholes and often flooded.

He said: “The state of the road leading on to Thorn Grove is atrocious, a drain has subsided and it is always flooding. The problem needs to be fixed right away.”

Councillors asked for Lancashire County Council to look into the issue and look to repairing the surface of Windy Bank, Skipton Road, and Keighley Road which have been blighted by potholes.

Coun. Tony Greaves said if county council engineers did not act now some well-used routes could become “impassable”.

County Councillor Mike Calvert said that repairs to potholed roads could not be undertaken until the icy weather had passed.
