One of the things I have brought up in this election is the small amount Essex County Council spends on pot holes in this part of the County.
I do walk the roads fairly often and report potholes and other road problems to Essex County Council. However it is very hit and miss whether a repair will take place and the standards Essex Highways currently have fall far short of what most people would regard as reasonable.
Below are some pictures I have taken today of pot holes in Kendal Close in Hullbridge, I have reported these at least three times over the last year and still they remain. I have reported them again today, these will be some of many I hope to follow-up with greater authority if I am fortunate enough to be elected on 2nd May. I have used the shoe to obtain a sense of scale, a tip learned from Cllr Chris Black.
Obviously Kendal Close is not the only road with problems and I will be reporting them all as I come across them, again.
