worn, bright, yellow, wide and narrow
Bury Times reports that Councillor Hodgkinson spoke up at a recent council meeting with regards to the condition of Bridge Street.
Speaking for Ramsbottom, Councillor Robert Hodgkinson raised the subject of the double yellow lines on Bridge Street since recent repairs:
The recent work carried out at the top of Bridge Street included reinstating the missing yellow lines. It was not done in accordance with our conservation policy.
We now have a patchwork of missing, worn, bright, yellow, wide and narrow lines.
Councillor Hodgkinson also questioned Councillor Alan Quinn as to why the resurfacing of Bridge Street never happened as was originally intended. Councillor Quinn informed all present that an assessment was made to the condition of Bridge Street and it was deemed to be sound. He went on to say:
The council does not have the necessary funds to undertake resurfacing works to roads that are not in need of such interventions when there are other roads within the borough that are in much more need.
I would tend to agree with Councillor Quinn here, Bridge Street isn’t in as much need as many others around Ramsbottom where we’ve got pot holes threatening to swallow up treasured pets. Have you been down Stanley Street recently near The Major? If that road gets any “holeyer” The Pope is going to be round declaring it sacred.
Ramsbottom United News:
It would seem that our run of good form has started to take a turn for the worse. Without a win in five games, questions will soon start to be asked of the team and what can be done to turn around this recent form.
Ramsbottom lost 3-1 to Colwyn Bay at home on Tuesday the 27th of September and also lost 2-1 away to Glossop North End on Saturday October 1st in which Gareth Seddon and Ryan Salmon picked up a yellow card each.
This match was also defender George Mannion‘s first outing for the Rams since transferring from Colwyn Bay. Welcome to the team George.
