  • Dear Sir, It has come to my notice that your road repair operatives appear to be blind in charge of a shovel and tar, which I'm sure must contravene some H&S regs. As you may note from the original notification, I reported that the road surface was in a bad condition, with several pot-holes, some extremely dangerous. This problem had been reported by other citizens recently and in previous years, culminating with your workforce trotting out on 8th April to "repair" said road. As you can see from the 2 photos showing the "repairs", they would probably be better-off taking their bucket and spade to the beach - perhaps to get some lessons in first before they tried the real thing. The 3rd photo shows just one area a few feet away that they ignored. I know, I know, it's hard to tell much as the repairs look pretty similar to the existing damaged surface - a quick dollop of tar mix and stamp it down with your foot.

    What I do not understand though, is that on the T- junction between Harroway and the B3048 the whole road surface was cleanly and professionally renewed, when as far as I was aware, it was completely okay in the first place - has someone with a bit of clout scuffed their tyres one day?

    So, what is it then I have to do to get a new road surface on London Road? I'm not particularly well-off and don't have a title so there's not much I can offer, other than being one of thousands of citizens who coughs up each year with a healthy dose of council tax (currently around £2400)..

    But lets face it, Looking at these photos you can't really deny that your workforce is just incompetent, lazy or blind, because no way could you say the road has been repaired..
