The village roads are a disgrace Wollaston road high street station road are full of potholes and areas where the road is sinking. Workers keep putting odd small areas of tarmac next to areas that also need repair. The roads are breaking up sinking and are a disgrace to the village and I put this down to poor management by the contractors and the NCC to control this work. An area near the jun ction of Bradshaw way and Wollaston top road are the worse. The village needs a proper survey and larger areas need repair for long term quility value for tax payers money.
