WMDC have supposedly had Fev down for Station Lane repairs to North Fev for months. Have to say that when a large percentage of a main streets road surface goes missing you have to wonder the reason why?

What a bloody poor job that wasnít worth waiting for. Nice for a couple of days! One guess where the pot holes and cracks are starting already? Yep in the same places they were before. More years of a bumpy road ahead! Sounds just like Featherstone. Sad

It must be the worst newly resurfaced road in Yorkshire, all the chipping are piled up in the middle and not actually stuck to the road. It must be causing motorists thousands of pounds in stone chip repairs ? Please send all repair bills to your local councillor  Angry

Just found out the resurfacing of Station Lane is far from complete due to the weather on the day they have to redo parts of it. Plus there is another surface dressing to be put on and all drain covers have to be raised. Grin

No sorry,
that should have been,
"Newyork,Newyork so good they had to name it twice"

Or just in little old Fev

"Fevstone, Fevstone, due to complaints they had to do it twice"

If it was down to the weather why didnít they stop ? Why havenít all the loose chipping been swept up ? They are a hazard. Why is common side lane so bad but highways are wasting time and money by installing block paving into the road on Girnhill lane ?

road tax isn't spent on the maintenance of local roads. Local roads are the responsibility of the council.

Road tax in any case only constributes in part to the maintenance and development of the road system.

You should complain to your councillor.
If the pot hole is big deep enough and wide enough to be a hazard to traffic, then the council couild find themselves in serious trouble in the event of an eccident-cyclists are p[articularly vulnerable, but other users too.

Hi
I have followed lots of stories for a while. Thought it time to join in.

I work on Station Lane. I keep hearing wheels spinning and vehicles sliding on the gravel. A friend of mine had her car back ended this week on Station Lane. Does anyone know what is going on? Where are road sweepers? When I went to Dranys this morning for the papers the crossing zig zag lines are painted on the road. No other road I have seen in Pontefract or Castleford has been the same. In Wakefield they take the tar up properly and replace.

Hi welcome to the forum  Smiley  your questions and the ones Iíve raised should be being asked by our local councillors. The council can do whatever they want without opposition. Station lane is a disgrace and only in Featherstone would they get away with it, Block paving looks nice though  Grin

people should drive according to the road conditions whatever they are.
If peoples' wheels are 'spinning', and they are 'back ending' each other, then it is they who are at fault no matter how poor the state of the road.

What about motorcycles ? Even at the slowest speed possible its like riding on marbles, its a hazzard which shouldn't be there in the first place and is easily sorted.
