When will something be done about our roads?
I AM writing because I felt the need to air something which is fast becoming a serious problem. I am referring to the state of the roads and pavements, specifically Ashbourne Road alongside Markeaton Park. The potholes on the road are just getting worse and, in the 10 years I have been walking on the pavement next to this road, I have never seen anything like it.
The potholes are huge, and pose a health and safety risk, especially as there is a lot of heavy traffic in the form of juggernauts and tankers. Cyclists would not stand a chance if their wheels got caught in one of these potholes and there was a lorry behind them.
Also, speaking as a pedestrian, I have to mention all the stones and gravel from the crumbling road, which are tossed by the vehicles on to the pavement. I rang Derby Street Pride about this some weeks back and they cleared most of the stones off the pavement within two days.
However, it is back to square one already.

When will the road be repaired? Are we going to have to wait for an accident to occur before anything is done?
