Re-dressing, the balance
In response to Dave Cockerells letter about the application of the lethal surface dressing, there was an online petition started some time ago, but I have
not seen an update on this. Any ideas? If the councils put down a bit more tar, and then rolled in the chippings instead of just spreading them, followed by a sweep once the tar had dried, it might not be too bad, and still cost a lot less than a full resurface.
That said, a top removal and new wearing course would be better for cars as well as bikes, and would last far longer than the ‘cheap’ solution currently employed. Rob Young
