Pot­hole has come back once again

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

Open let­ter to Martin Tett, leader of Bucks County Coun­cil and Mrs Brooke Webb, ser­vice direc­tor – com­plaints SINCE Novem­ber/De­cem­ber I have been try­ing to have pot­holes re­paired in Ethorpe Close and Cres­cent. Af­ter two ap­peals you fi­nally agreed to re­pair one, a par­tic­u­larly bad re­cur­ring one at the junc­tion of the two roads, near the cinema car park.

This was re­paired two or three weeks ago and the re­pair has be­come un­done, the pot­hole is back.

This re­pair is cost­ing time and money be­cause it is not be­ing man­aged prop­erly. I have re­quested, on at least two oc­ca­sions, to meet the in­spec­tor when they are ex­am­in­ing but this has been ig­nored.

Once again, I would ask you to at­tend to this pot­hole. Once again, I would ask if I may meet with the in­spec­tor.

I would also draw your at­ten­tion to my orig­i­nal email, on Oc­to­ber 21, re­port­ing this pot­hole and seven oth­ers in Ethorpe Close which need at­ten­tion – thank you for at­tend­ing to the dou­ble yel­low lines

This con­firms the points made in my open let­ter to Martin Tett, printed in the let­ters page of the Bucks Ad­ver­tiser (Fe­bru­ary 5), and I urge you to take the points made se­ri­ously and hope­fully you can in­tro­duce an im­proved strat­egy.

than a dozen cars, as res­i­dents pre­fer to park on yel­low lines out­side the Co-op by the Old Post Of­fice and on the ze­bra cross­ing.

The sit­u­a­tion by the read­ing room is even worse with the road fre­quently re­duced to a sin­gle lane. More space on the High Street should be re­served for those with gen­uine mo­bil­ity prob­lems, giv­ing the rest of us a lit­tle light ex­er­cise.

on-street park­ing is con­stantly abused. To il­lus­trate, a van has been parked out­side our shop for the last three days.
