On July 3oth I registered a complaint with East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC).
I am delight to announce that on August 7th ERYC informed me that:
“I believe the photograph included in your article is of Clayfield Close in Pocklington. This road has been raised as a site in need of road maintenance and as a result it is included in our programme for major maintenance this financial year (2015/16).”
It is anyones guess if Clayfield Close would have been repaired without my intervention.
But ERYC also stated:
“The Council manages a road network of over 2,000 miles and as such we have to prioritise the work we can include within our maintenance programme. Our annual programme is prepared using all available data including road condition, safety records, and the input of the Area Engineer.”
So why has it taken so long to use “all available data including road condition, safety records, and the input of the Area Engineer” for Clayfield Close when this was used for Sherbuttgate and Broadmanor which was in a better condition?
A two tier system confirmed in my opinion.
