Shoddy re­pairs are not value for money

Birmingham Post - - FEATURE -

DEAR Edi­tor, The state of the ma­jor­ity of Birm­ing­ham’s roads is dis­grace. Some of the re­pairs are shoddy and leave the roads in a not much bet­ter state af­ter the work has been com­pleted. The coun­cil should be more ag­gres­sive in mak­ing sure that a value for money job is done.

Around Long­bridge you can see rip­ples in some of the larger re­pairs. Any road re­pair should last years if done cor­rectly.

In other parts of the UK and other coun­tries, when cracks ap­pear in the sur­face they run liq­uid tar in to hold them to­gether and it works. If it works and is cost-ef­fec­tive else­where, so why not here?

A Baker, Long­bridge, Birm­ing­ham
