Potholes

Plugging Potholes

Repeated calls for urgent action and a comprehensive report by Catton Parish Council on the state of the roads in the Parish have finally gained a response. The ERYC are slowly, one by one, filling in the potholes. The work appears to be little more than a temporary measure but pressure will be kept up to ensure our Parish road network is safe once again.

Your observations on the state of our roads would be most welcome in ’Feedback’ to be found elsewhere on this website.
