Is it me or has the quality of road surfacing in the area taken a complete dive over the last few years?
I fully appreciate there are lots of works going on, notably Thames Water's belated numerous attempts at investment, and all the other utilies too, but it seems the roads are getting ever more dangerous.
The number of poorly surfaced roads, with pot holes springing up all over the place when tarmac is poorly used to fill in trench works is making it dangerous for everyone, from vehicle users down through to motorcycles and scooters and especially to cyclists.
At the beginning of last year when I complained to Southwark Council
about Bermondsey Street
they told me that the Thames Water works' meant it was poitnless doing anything about it. Is this an excuse they are using borough-wide?
Does anyone know what's going on....I'm sure the council will simply plead poverty. Something needs to be done before a serious accident happens.
