So many potholes along the Meadway, that motorists are obliged to weave along the road in an effort to avoid hitting them. This is very likely to be a cause of accidents especially with vehcules travelling in the opposite direction.

These potholes have been here for many months and are becoming more and more dangerous.

  • Meadway getting worse on both lanes. Unbelievably council may mark one pot hole for fix (still waiting however) but you could look all around and see lots more not marked of equal size and depth. A complete road resurfacing is necessary such is the popularity of this road. It’s only going to get much worse in coming months.

  • The Meadway is REALLY bad to drive on, it causes motorists to swerve and zig-zag in an effort to avoid the potholes, it's only a matter of time before an accident happens. I also noticed yesterday [when driving towards the M4] that Halls Road is now becoming very full of potholes too.

  • It doesn't seem like anything has been done along The Meadway. The whole road needs resurfacing. RBC get your fingers out!

  • I've seen a list on Reading Borough web-site of the roads due to be repaired during the next 3 years - amazingly The Meadway, which is the very worst road in this location, and used by most locals, is NOT on that list. Is there a reason for this?
