You can send a letter to the editor to have your say by clicking here.

Letters should not exceed 250 words and local issues take precedence.

Traffic closures and restrictions should be limited and work carried out to a strict schedule, if contractor goes over time there is a fine. Plus road gangs should only put up lights and signs when actually working!

Not day or two before and after.

Ratepayers are paying for inadequate and incompetent highways works.
