Various Surrey County Councillors, including Alfold’s Cllr Kevin Deanus, put a roadworks schedule weekly on social media.
We wonder if he is raising merry-hell with the Executive on which he sits about the shocking state of the A281 Horsham to Guildford Road that, in sections, is becoming a danger to everyone using it.
We thought our roads in and around Farnham were terrible, but everyone should visit the Cranleigh by-pass. Are the highway honchos waiting for Dunsfold Airfield Limited to do the road up? Because if so, they may have a long wait.
The works schedule includes some beneficial hints, e.g. Stock up on your de-icing kit etc.
Perhaps it should include advice on carrying around a spare tyre on your back seat because new cars don’t have spare tyres, just a contraption to blow it up enough to get you to the nearest lay-by! Which won’t work when your tyre is shredded! Perhaps it should also include advice on driving on many of Waverley’s pot-holed roads at a maximum of 5 miles per hour, so you can spot potholes that will wreck your tyres and wheels.
Or perhaps some advice on driving on the right side of the road rather than swerving onto the other facing oncoming traffic to avoid the potholes!
Or Perhaps – provide some ‘do it yourself pothole filling kits,’ so those poor unsuspecting nurses, social workers, teachers and office workers, and all those doomed drivers like us don’t end up spending more on car repairs than we earn in a week!
However, at a county council meeting last week (when council tax was raised again), here’s a clip f what was said. In a nutshell – yep, you guessed. ‘It’s the Government’s fault.”
