More Money In The Pot

The snow and ice may be long gone, but it has left its mark in the form of thousands of pot holes in our roads. Take your eyes of the tarmac ahead of you and before you can say 'replacement tyres' you'll have crashed and bumped into at least a couple of them.

The London Borough Of Sutton has put an extra £500,000 into the...ermm...pot for emergency repairs and is asking for residents' help in reporting the location of pot holes or damaged road surfaces.

To report a problem in the Worcester Park area you can call the contact centre on 020 8770 5070 or emailing the council on potholes@sutton.gov.uk. 

If you are going to report a problem by e-mail, be sure to include the nearest house number or business premise to the area of damage to help them identify where action is needed.

CTC (National Cycling Organisation) have an easy way to report pot holes with their reporting log using an online map:

If Sutton Council hadn't wholly unnecessarily top-coated Lindsay Road, Worcester Park especially during this financially tight time (the slight surface cracking had been there for many years and would have been there unchanged for many more) then that cash could have helped the pothole plugging.
Our Council Tax is already extortionate without squanderage (is that a word ? ! ) like Lindsay Road.

to make things worse in regards to lindsay road re-surfacing we have just had a note through the door saying that the gas board are going to dig up the road to replace the pipes!

Yes, that is unbelievable about the gas works Mr or Mrs Anonymous. I think they are going to dig holes rather than a great long trench and roll the yellow mains pipe in to line the old cast iron ones.
I might go and have a look with a match when they've all gone home !
