Call for 'dangerous' potholes in Queens Road in Broadstairs to be fixed

A worried resident living near Broadstairs seafront has warned that potholes have become so bad someone will soon get injured.

Mike Wetherill, a retired engineer, says the state of the road in Queens Gardens near Louisa Bay has fallen into disrepair and nothing is being done by authorities.

“It urgently needs a comprehensive and major road repair before winter sets in,” he said.

“Blue badge residents living in the immediate vicinity are facing the prospect of falling as they are forced to circumnavigate several dangerous potholes outside their homes.

“Many elderly residents are struggling daily to access their vehicles parked in the gardens and the nearby streets, all of which woefully fail to meet their parking needs.”

The 75-year-old says the situation will only get worse throughout the winter and that someone could end up hurt.

“The road needs to be repaired properly so it lasts,” he added.

A KCC spokesman said: “We have received no reports of problems with potholes in Queen’s Gardens. Our officers will inspect the road and any repairs that are necessary will be programmed in for repairs.”
