Dumfries and Galloway Council has been accused of throwing money down the drain on defective road repairs.
Several “shoddy” attempts to fix the crumbling C50S near Glenlochar are “a waste of money”, according to community leaders.
Photographic evidence given to the News depicts three sub-standard fixes on a crater near Balmaghie Kirk.
The first repair, made last March, failed within weeks while the second, in January, disintegrated within hours.
Workmen arrived last week for a third attempt but only partially-filled the pothole
