REPAIRS to a road in Trefnant have been criticised and described as “totally inadequate” by a resident.

The road, adjacent to Allt Goch, was subject to works several weeks ago after potholes had plagued it for roughly a year prior.

But a resident, who asked not to be named and who took the attached photos of the works, said the repairs carried out were “terrible” and urged Denbighshire County Council to resurface the road.

“The road doesn’t seem to have a street name, but it has been a problem for about a year,” the resident said.

“They came to repair it about a month ago, but it’s just back to what it was. Ideally, I would like it all resurfaced because there are far too many individual potholes.

“The holes were filled in, but they are no better than before. It just looked totally inadequate.”

The resident added that they have emailed the council’s highways department to share their concerns.

“They need to come back and resurface the whole road, as the verge side is just as bad,” the resident added.

“I, personally, think it is a waste of time and money. You don't need a 20mph sign there, as you have to do that anyway because of the condition of the road.

“The fact the council accepts that standard of work is terrible.”

In response, a council spokesperson said: “Residents can report any road damage or potholes through the portal on the website.

“This is the quickest and most efficient way for the information to be presented to our highways team so that they can assess and address the issue.

“Roads are regularly inspected and potholes which require filling are noted and followed up.”
