Sarah Bell questioning the money spent resurfacing a dead-end lane not far from her, reminded me of my own ''Why have they done that?'' four or five years ago.

Herefordshire council completely resurfaced a little used dead-end lane not far from my home.

We thought it was an error as the much busier lane that serves it had a serious pothole problem.


Apparently it was not a mistake!

Two years ago they spent more money on the same resurfaced dead-end lane and dressed it with tar and chippings.

How was this expenditure justified?

Herefordshire Council regularly plead poverty, yet still find substantial sums of money to beautifully maintain little-used roads.

Perhaps attention to the busier thoroughfares nearby would be of greater benefit.
