Repairs!

Grange Gardens before repairs
After our recent items on potholes, the Echo wrote an article about it here and mentioned the road that we had photographed – Grange Gardens.

Figures released for the last three years show Rochford received £920,000 for the last three years whereas Colchester received £3,230,000.

The size and population of Colchester is roughly double that of Rochford but in the last three years it has had about three and a half times more money spent on repairing potholes.

Chris Black, Lib Dem Rochford District councillor, said he and fellow councillors asked for Grange Gardens in Rayleigh to be added to the repair list as it is particularly bad.

He said: “Despite all the complaints from ward councillors and the public the county have slipped way way behind with fixing our roads, especially in Rochford. Things have got to a ridiculously bad situation.

We are pleased to report that repairs have been going on this week at Grange Gardens!
