‘Long-term solution’ needed to fix potholes says MP as roads in Gedling borough ‘not good enough’

Bookmark

Gedling MP Tom Randall has commented on the dreadful state of the roads across the borough as potholes continue to get worse following floods and cold weather.

A large number of potholes have appeared after recent spells of bad weather, leaving drivers frustrated and scared.

But drivers don’t think enough has been done so far – with one group of residents forming a dedicated Facebook group to highlight the problem and also creating a calendar to make light of the pothole pandemic.

Mr Randall said the state of the roads across the borough is the biggest issue raised by constituents.

Gedling MP Tom Randall said a ‘long-term solution’ is needed to tackle the pothole problem

Gedling MP Tom Randall
The Gedling MP identified Westdale Lane as one of the worst affected roads in the borough

He said: “Our roads are not good enough. And I think that not only as your Member of Parliament but also as a local resident.

“I live in Arnold and use our roads to get around the constituency I represent. I know full well that rattling around on the top deck of the 25 bus as it goes down Westdale Lane isn’t pleasant.

“There’s nothing that I would love more than for local residents to wake up one morning to find a fresh blanket of tarmac has been laid across every street in Gedling. But the reality is that this is a big problem requiring a long-term solution. It can be fixed, but it won’t be fixed overnight.”

Mr Randall has now set up a dedicated page on his website offering advice and signposting residents to where they can report problems.

The MP says he is also planning to host a Facebook Live Q&A with Nottinghamshire County Council Leader, Cllr Ben Bradley MP to answer questions on the matter in the near future.

  1. It is laughable that these two tories should be going on about pot holes, when it is their party in government that has strangled council budgets that has caused the problem.

  2. Why show pictures of ‘one term Tom’ standing in front of a tarmac road surfacing project? There is no road surfacing happening in Gedling – just patch work, which fails after the first rainfall/frost.

    A council starved of cash for not being tory…

    14 years of lies, drunken Downing Street disco nights (during Lockdowns), chums given huge contracts for unusable PPE, A PM who lasted 39 days and did huge damage to the OUR country – an NHS on its knees as they feet ready to finally sell what is left to some greedy American Insurance companies.

    A sickening gang of privileged, incompetent, and heartless failures

    14 years – 14 wasted years.

  4. You can’t help but laugh at the pair of them to be honest, Mike Adams looks like he is saying ” look Tom if I can somehow plug the hole with my finger it might save enough money to spend on some more new toilets, what do you think ? ” to which Tom Randall replies ” Great idea whoever you are & by the way who am I & what am I doing here anyway ? ”
    Seriously it’s too daft to laugh at

  5. Maybe if they made the utility companies make proper repairs to road surface after.they dug it up months after being resurfaced, I live on west Dale and have seen the mess utility companies make of repairing their holes, they dont bother leave it council payers money seems to be the attitude
