Half a dozen deep potholes along Jonas Way have been filled in as part of a "temporary solution" to "patch up" the popular track that leads to Gobions Open Space.

The road, which is frequently used by dog owners, anglers, guardians taking children to use the play equipment, and those accessing a network of local footpaths, had become difficult to drive along because of the depth of the holes.

Jonas Way is owned and managed by Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust (HMWT). The car park it leads to is owned and managed by North Mymms Parish Council (NMPC).

Beyond the NMPC's Gobions Open Space is Gobions Wood, which is managed by the HMWT.

As part of the temporary fix, the local authority said it would provide the material for the infill, and the HMWT agreed to provide the labour.

Three months ago this site reported that a "patch up" was planned for the Jonas Way potholes and that the NMPC had put forward this "temporary solution".

Rob Hopkins, Reserves Officer for HMWT told this site at the time that the work would be carried out by volunteers, so there would be no cost involved. He added that he had no idea how effective the work would be, but said that it would provide a temporary improvement.
