24 August (Part 1) - Bexley council. In a hole again

Daily TelegraphAccording to The National Cyclists’ Organisation which runs a website collating reports and statistics on potholes, Bexley only fixes 27% of its holes in the road, which puts it in 97th place out of the 214 authorities on their list. Not as good as Greenwich but twice as good as Lewisham. Bromley with its lower taxes manages to fix 90% of holes.

Brampton Road north of King Harolds Way seems to be one big pothole. I suspect the road was simply not built to a high enough standard and the subsoil is insufficient to take the load.

The news cutting is from today’s Daily Telegraph.
