Grayshott residents in final funding push for roadworks

A CROWDFUNDING campaign has been set up by a group of Grayshott residents in a last-ditch bid to fund road improvements.
Boundary Road Residents’ Association is asking everyone in the village, particularly those who use the surgery and St Edmund’s School, to help raise the last few thousand pounds needed.
Boundary Road is an unadopted bridleway which runs across the border between Hampshire and Surrey but it gives access to the surgery and is a route to the school.
The bridleway is private property, jointly owned by each of the property owners fronting it and, technically, its maintenance is the responsibility of residents. Read this News (opens in new window)

Roads in Borders worst in Scotland when it comes to repairs

ROADS in the Borders are the worst in Scotland when it comes to repairs, new research has shown.

Maintaining Scotland’s Roads, a report produced by Audit Scotland, has revealed that roads in the region have deteriorated more than in any other area since 2011.

The findings show the quality of roads maintained by Scottish Borders Council have decreased by nine per cent, the biggest drop across the whole of Scotland.

The revelation comes just months after the Peeblesshire News reported that a pensioner from Wales described the region’s roads as the worst she had ever seen, after suffering two punctures from potholes whilst visiting Peeblesshire. Read this News (opens in new window)

State of roads is damaging cars

Driving through Little Common to get to Eastbourne in the last three months, I have had to significantly slow down to five miles per hour as the roads are caving in. There are massive potholes in the village outside the shops. My suspension takes a beating every time. If my car were to be damaged, then I would take the legal loophole and sue the Highways Agency.

LETTER: Resurfacing must be priority

It’s me again complaining about the road surface on Greenway, Horsham. I wrote to you a few months ago and you published my letter. In the letter I said an accident would happen in this road due to the extremely poor road surface.

After my initial letter to yourselves I emailed both our local MP and West Sussex County Council Highways, but I still have not received a reply from either of them as to when works would commence. I recently drove down Station Road, Horsham, to find this was being resurfaced, this road was nowhere near as bad as Greenway - surely Greenway is a priority!

Shame about state of road

Seeing the article about Councillor Rankin’s concerns over his constituents having to negotiate over roads which have numerous potholes, it is a great shame he does not show the same concerns for the road he owns, namely Old Roar Road. This road suffers numerous potholes over its entire lengths and though he collects payments of an annual £40 levy towards the cost of maintenance, residents have to wait months to have the work carried out.
