The government is listening to some of the motorists’ issues and one that is dear to our heart is the epidemic of pot holes. Whilst this has been good for business we look forward to the day when these become a thing of the past!
Local authorities are set to get a £420 million cash injection to help tackle the UK’s growing pothole epidemic.
However, as drivers contribute more than £45bn in motoring taxation every year, it really is not that generous. It remains to be seen how many of the famous pot holes in and around Farnham do disappear.
You can play your part in helping reduce problem potholes by spotting and reporting them.
To help with this we are setting out descriptions of the more common ones. When you do spot one simply call your local authority with the name:
The list is much longer so the time has come for all of us to report these to your Local Authority. It is their responsibility to make sure that we, the public, come to no harm on the streets. Now that a budget has been made available there can be no excuses.
We serve a wide area from Farnham including Tilford, Frensham, Churt, Headley, Headley Down, Lindford, Bordon, Kingsely, Alton, Crondall, Church Crookham, Fleet, Aldershot, Farnborough, Camberley. So, whatever Local Authority covers those let’s hope we see a dramatic reduction in all types of pot holes soon.
