Road Works

One of the things I was pleasantly surprised by after the election was that road works continued to take place. Our roads were in danger of falling apart; cracks and potholes were all over the place and commuting was a bit of an adventure in many places.

However, Works and Engineering continued to repave several key roads over the past few months, including North Shore in Flatts, Middle Road near Paget Lights and Middle Road near Amaral’s.

I’m a bit concerned that perhaps the fix won’t hold up, as after rain and wind from Tropical Kyle passed through over the weekend, a visible pothole appeared in the road near Paget Lights. I don’t know if the material laid down wasn’t strong enough, it wasn’t allowed to harden enough or we simply have too many large vehicles tearing up the roads in the first place. But it’s not a good sign that road laid down less than six months ago is already falling apart.
