OSCOTTS RESURFACED PAVEMENTS NEED TO BE BETTER
Sadly far too many of the roads in Oscott which have been resurfaced or repaired have been left in a condition where standing water puddles occur following often even light rain.
Resurfaced road need to be checked off better on completion to ensure hollows/ dips are not left in the pavement which will result in free standing water.
I am concerned that not only can this lead to minor frustrations like muddy shoes but come a hard winter these puddles will become icy which could result in slips, falls and injury.
I have contacted Amey Highways and the BCC Cabinet member for Transportation asking them to consider the matter.
I AM HOWEVER STILL PUSHING FOR MORE OF THE PAVEMENTS AND CARRIAGEWAYS IN OSCOTT TO BE RESURFACED OR PROPERLY REPAIRED.
