  • Dear Sirs

    Thank you for your update today

    This is a very dangerous situation in which it is imperitive that all road markings & safety measures should be in perfect condition at all times . Your routine Highway Inspections should have always ensured that these road markings never deteriorate to poor level which we see today. However we know that this is never the case as this problem is only ever addressed after we complain. Waiting 6 months for rectification is totally untenable & we would like to learn why immediate rectification is not possible. You will note that Highway Inspections is mentioned in our original report but no mention seems to be made in your response

  • We have been advised that this will take 6 months to fix. It is a problem which the Council Inspections should have identified & had they followed up these inspection reports rectification would have taken place & we would not be having this interchange. Not unlike a similar circumstance with a Bridge inspection which caused the turmoil of this busy & dangerous road being closed for 5 months. Are lessons not being learned?
