Harlow Council call for action over potholes
News / Sat 31st Mar 2018 am31 10:21am
A MOTION calling for action over the increasing problems over potholes in the town.
Toddbrook councillor Tony Edwards (Labour) gave a detailed explanation of the problems and expressed his frustrations at the reporting mechanisms.
Conservative councillors, whist supporting the motion, detailed the work that Essex County Council had done across the town.
Guy at work visited Harlow for the first time this week to see his new girlfriend, hit a pothole while he was here and destroyed his front tyre. Young love eh? This is an issue that is at the forefront of many residents' minds, as the cost of damage can be so steep it's almost vertical and claiming can be a minefield. Labour councillors I know are raising the issue with protests and other campaigns but as we saw this week, it's always better if the other side turns up to meetings. ECC need to meet half way here, only one side is doing all the running right now.
A long term solution is required starting with a 7.5ton weight limit on all east-west roads in the town thus ensuring anything over that stays on the 414 for the Pinnacles industrial estate and ensuring that it is enforced.
