Road surfaces across the borough are failing only months after work was carried out, county council bosses have revealed.
Surface dressing schemes were carried out across the borough last summer.
But just months after works were completed, roads including Blackburn Road, Burnley Road, New Lane, Whalley Road and Sparth to Queens Road have all been affected by the road surface breaking up and stones hitting cars or being washed away completely.
Oswaldtwistle councillor Peter Britcliffe, who previously raised issues about New Lane, said the situation has caused a lot of inconvenience.
He said: ““It’s left a lot of muck and mess on the roads and caused damage to people’s cars.”
Conservative leader Tony Dobson said he had launched a campaign to get the county council bosses to pay compensation to people whose cars had been damaged.
Phil Durnell, head of highways for Lancashire County Council, said: “The surface of a number of the schemes carried out by the contractor have begun to fail and we are currently cataloguing the failures to establish the level of remedial work needed.
“The contractor has taken responsibility for these failures and will bear the full cost of putting them right. That remedial work needs good weather so the contractor will be back to carry it out in spring/summer this year.
“In the meantime the contractor is regularly sweeping the roads and pavements affected to remove the loose material, and will carry out any work needed until they can be fully repaired to ensure they are safe.
“We’re sorry for the inconvenience and are working to ensure the problems are resolved.”
