LETTER: Road conditions were a disgrace

editorial image

I was out and about with friends on Friday, Boxing Day, from approx 3:30pm through until 10:30pm - the main roads and bus routes in Mansfield, including the ring road had NOT been gritted or cleared.

This was absolutely clear from the condition. Anyone from Notts County Council claiming otherwise should be asked to explain.

The condition of the roads during late evening on Friday was quite simply a disgrace and as a result we are now suffering accordingly as the snow has subsequently frozen making conditions even worse. A complete shambles.

If I did my job as poorly in the private sector as the people taking these decisions I would expect to leave my position.

A complete disgrace.
