In a surprise development, Essex Highways revisited our road today and patched some more potholes, including the ones outside our house. Here's the result:

For comparison, it used to look like this:

Our property (on the left) actually extends beyond the wall to the line where the surface of the road changes type (the water meter there is about a foot within our boundaries). This means the tarmac guys dug up and repaired some of our land, too, not that I'm complaining.

Pleased though I am not to have to drive through a hole every morning, it's clear that the surface at the near end hasn't been finished off well and will probably come loose when we get pothole weather again. Also, if they'd come round sooner they could have fixed individual potholes rather than having to resurface sections of the road. A stitch in time saves nine and all that...

Still, at least they did come back and they did fix it.
