  • This is very bad judgement by the council.

    Go stand on the stretch of road - maybe as much as 100m -and see the cars swerving. It’s a major arterial road partially on the hill on a hill, so people are dazzled by oncoming lights whilst also trying to avoid the potholes.

    Not one of the councils best decisions!
