Reporting road potholes in the aldershot miltary area.
By timatworkhomeandinbetween on Mar 08, 2006
I reported Rushmoor Rd ( little lane that runs past Rushmoor Arena near Aldershot) to Hampshire County council Hampshire Potholes because it is full of big deep potholes and they rang back to say it is a military road and they can't do anything - didn't know who to contact... Some googling later the folks to contact are the MOD Defence Estates on 0121 311 3869, who were very very helpful.
FYI here is the website to report potholes to Surrey county council.

Still waiting for a response from Hampshire County council for my question about what they could do to improve the M3 J4a North side roundabout. Motorists coming over the motorway do not seem to expect cyclists to go straight on into the Sun campus so they overtake them and turn sharp left up the Minley Rd, all in one manouver - very dangerous. This is not helped by the road approaching the roundabout being very wide then suddenly having two lanes whitelined a few yards before the junction. I have had people do this even when I have been cycling in the middle of the left lane with my right arm sticking out - am I invisible!!!
It was raining last night as I cycled home but that did not stop half a dozen drivers performing stupid overtaking manouvers, several overtook me on blind lefthand bends even though I occupied the road so they had to use the wrong side. Two overtook over the brow of the hill, and three waited until the road had pedestrian refuges and then overook at the narrowist point - maniacs! To me it seems that speeding is the tip of the iceberg, these drivers had decided that rushing was more important than being safe..
