LETTERS - Happy birthday pothole

AFTER three or four years of complaining to both the council and my three local councillors about the dreadful condition of Brandy Carr Road, I am amazed that this busy artery to the M1 is not on the list to be repaired.

Do our local representatives ever drive down this third world road, because I am sure that if they did they would be making it their priority to have it completely resurfaced. Just now cars are having to drive down the centre of this road to avoid to scores of 2ins potholes with the result of “when is the first head-on collision going to happen?”

Years ago when I was as a councillor in a neighbouring district you did the job for “nowt” never mind expenses and jobs like this got done. Those were the days.
