Why not fix them all at once?

While stuck in traffic on King Offa Way recently I noticed the forest of weeds on the central reservation with derelict, broken and rusting road signs to add to the appearance.

Given that this might be the only contact passing travellers have with Bexhill I felt it needed attention.

East Sussex Highways quickly passed me on to those responsible for the trunk road network area four!

They could not have been more helpful and have promised that an action plan is in place to deal with the issue and for good measure I mentioned the weeds on the pavement in De La Warr Road and they have added this onto the list! I await action.

In Collington Rise recently I spotted three lorries, about six or seven workmen and countless roadworks signs.

When they had departed I was surprised to see that they have just filled four potholes and even more surprised to see that a pothole had been left untouched adjacent to one that had been dealt with!

I have asked East Sussex Highways Centre for comment.

Presumably this particular pothole was not on the schedule and the team will have to make an expensive return visit sometime.

I also asked what happened to those miraculous pothole-mending machines which I read about some time ago – or was it all a dream?

I still await their response.
