A pot-hole ridden road used daily by hundreds of commuters will not be fixed until 2014 after county council bosses confirmed it is not part of resurfacing plans.

Despite Lancashire County Council being alerted to the worsening condition of Bryning Lane last September by Warton resident Jessica Ashworth, 23, the road remains pot-holed.

And the damage has increased throughout the winter as hundreds of commuters travel between Wrea Green and BAE Warton.

Despite several temporary fixes, the road has continued to break-up, with drivers having to swerve dangerously into the middle of the road.

Sim Lane-Dixon, highways manager for Fylde, said: “While it has been our intention to make more substantial repairs to this section of Bryning Lane, pressures from elsewhere on the highways network have prevented this.”
