  • Hi we have had a lot of road works at this point with new traffic lights and alterations of curbs . When they tarmaced the road they also tarmaced the exit path of the petrol station that had two pot holes , when I talked to the Forman about the other side that is a compleat mess with sinkage, he said that will be done when the other traffic lights get done it will be renew down to where we have finished . But this did not happen ,and a good section of old road got left and the path entrance to the petrol station. I have lived next door to the petrol station for 36 years and this pathway has been dug up so many times and at one stage the curb that defines the end of the path and the entrance of the petrol station were dug up and never got put back , now with all the new houses that are being built we have children riding there bikes to school thinking they have right of way because there are no curbs! Accident waiting to happen. While I was on holiday two of the 34 repair to this section of path way have had some work done on them very poor repair and already showing signs of wear and decay plus not only that this has been a pain for me and my family as we can hear and feel vehicles hit the lumps and bumps when they hit the pathway entrance to the petrol station. When your inspector came out ( if one did ) they should of said the entrance path should of been done first before the Exit path. Look forward to your reply Peter Armer 141 Barton Road Nn156rt
