Victoria Road Hale

I have just been to look and measure some of the pot holes along Victoria Road in Hale.

It is a short unassuming kind of road in a wealthy area.  Is is also a main route for cyclists heading out towards the Cheshire countryside as well as a popular route into Hale village itself where there are some lovely shops.

I have managed to take about 130 photos in all.

And I am not sure whether I am cross, disappointed or just plain angry at the moment.  I think maybe we are all just so used to the state of the road we have become blind to it.  Maybe we are so preoccupied at dodging the holes (and rightly so) that we switch off to how bad it has got.  Either way, walking down it and taking a more analytical look at the road surface has left me fuming and sadly one member of the club in hospital.

I have taken so many photos it would be impossible to post them here, so I have uploaded them to Flickr. Flickr photostream

But have a look at the video I made at the end as a brief overview.

I would love to know your thoughts.
