Grab a shovel and fill in pot-holes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

High­ways au­thor­i­ties are aim­ing to tackle pot­holes but, despite an al­most frost-free win­ter, they don’t seem to be get­ting on top of the prob­lem.

To speed up their op­er­a­tions they de­cided to make use of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy where the pub­lic are en­cour­aged to go on­line to re­port any holes they may see.

Such are the won­ders of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy. But even com­put­ers and tech­nol­ogy have their lim­i­ta­tions. There is plenty of ev­i­dence out and about to show that their sys­tem is not work­ing.

We have more and more holes ap­pear­ing in our roads. There is no sub­sti­tute for get­ting out of their cosy of­fices, grab­bing a shovel and be­ing pre­pared to get one’s hands dirty. Ted Prangnell, Ken­ning­ton
