Sadly, it seems everyone's pot holes locally have been resurfaced, and indeed we have new fresh, flat new tarmac around the Tamerisc road areas with fresh bright painted road markings (that many still ignore) but the very busy road of Brooklands, filled with buses, tourists and locals are now having to swerve all over the place due to wheel breaking sized potholes in the road's surface.

Cant remember how many years ago it was topped with tarmac "looking" black stuff but my tired old brain recalls it being some sort of 2 part mix likened to epoxy glue type of thing that carried a warranty of use.

Now I can't remember either the time/date of being laid nor its warranty period, coz its awful now.

Think I need to take some photos with something we know to use as a comparison of size.

(NOT MM`s mouth i heard someone say)

Going back even more years we had one of these home shaking potholes outside number 12 Brooklands, and whenever a bus or HGV went over it shook our homes, and I`m 3 back from the front, so, one night, a "good fairy" arrived armed with a bucket of post-mix, and a watering can full of water, plus a long stick... the bucket was emptied as was the watering can and the stick stirred the "porridge" and the "good fairy" was gone...  The next day someone published this in the Gazette and there was a public outcry, but, ECC highways crew arrived, dug out the dried concrete, and refilled the hole with new cold tarmac. Homes in that area never shook from pothole induced vibrations for a few years happily..

Come back Mr/ MRS "good fairy" I say..lol

would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.

And the good news is, about a week or more ago, the bus breaking potholes in Brooklands Road have been redressed then filled (mostly) so the tourists going to there tin huts in Martello Beach holiday Resort can now safely drive along as if free drinks were on offer in the next few minutes of the "owners" suite at said camp.

But respite will soon begin, as I been led to believe the biggest employer In Jaywick is undergoing a winter refurb as Its holiday season comes to an end very soon..
