VEHICLES are crashing through deep potholes so loudly they are setting off a car alarm, a resident says.
Andrea Twigg has complained about the increasingly bumpy state of the surface of Holyhead Road in Chirk.
She fears the condition of the Tarmac is deteriorating rapidly, with ever deeper crevices appearing.
Mrs Twigg said the problem is getting to be so bad that noise generated from traffic hitting pot holes as they drive past her home is now starting to set off the alarm on her Audi when it is parked in the driveway.
“I have lived here for 15 years and I have never known the road to be in as poor a standard of repair as it is now,” said Mrs Twigg, 50.
“It has got to the state now where my car alarm is going off because of the noise which is being generated by heavy vehicles such as passing lorries.
“I am totally fed up with it.”
Mrs Twigg said she had raised the issue with highways representatives but without any resolution to the problem.
A spokesman for Wrexham Council said the authority under takes regular safety inspections on its roads.
“As part of our road maintenance programme, we carry out significant work on detailed inventories and condition assessment of our entire highway infrastructure,” the spokesman said.
“Resurfacing programmes are prioritised based on the severity of the damage on the road. Issues surrounding potholes are reported to us via local councillors and members of the public.
“During the 2013-14 year Wrexham Council will spend more than £2 million on its maintenance programme to help to maintain the road network in Wrexham.”
The spokesman added members of the public can make reports about potholes by calling 01978 298989 or by logging on to the council’s website at www.wrexham.gov.uk
