We all hate potholes. They're extremely
hazardous to cyclists and motorbikes, damage cars and make our roads
look ugly. Bizarrely, they also seem to have replaced kissing babies as
the 21st century politician's photo-opportunity of choice, as the very
funny ‘Glum Councillors’ website shows…
So it is with a sense of foreboding that I launch my own 'fix our potholes' campaign.
The fact is they cause accidents and damage cars. Which is why I'm disappointed Wandsworth Council seems to be doing so little to deal with the enormous number that have appeared on our streets in recent months.
The Council will try and fob residents off, telling us it's a national problem caused by the extended cold spell we've had, but the reality is that for years we have suffered the consequences of Wandsworth Council not maintaining our roads and pavements properly. Indeed recently the Evening Standard reported that Wandsworth had the second highest number of pot holes in the whole of London, and that just 1 in 3 get fixed.
It’s time to show Wandsworth just how poorly they’re maintaining our roads, and get them to do something about it.
So please take 10 minutes from your day and:
