It's great on summer days, cycling dodging the cycle track potholes, or going for a walk, again dodging the badly maintained pavements in Harlow desperately trying to help out the Hospital by not getting injured by the obstacles Essex County Council put in our way. What happens in the winter, no pavements are gritted, and even bus lanes with 30cm of snow were missed by Essex County Council. Even a frosty day will scare most people into their cars only to find Harlow council does not grit their car parks, and sheets of ice linger around the parking metre. One day utopia might happen, Harlow got nearly there, back in the '60s and '70s then Margret Thatcher came along and smashed up all the good works.
