Residents baffled after council can 'only afford' to repair half the road - leaving most full of potholes

Residents are baffled after the council could 'only afford' to repair a stretch of their pothole-filled road - leaving most of it full of holes. Last week workers visited Caernarvon Road in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, after weeks of complaints from residents over the state of the road. But they only filled in huge potholes on a small stretch - around 160m - leaving the remaining bit of around 800m filled with potholes, up to 50cm in size. Residents claim the council told they they only had enough cash in the kitty to fill in the tiny stretch. And a council spokesperson confirmed they were making the "best use of our planned resources" and the rest would be done in the "next financial year".
