Exit pothole

LETTER

A few weeks before Christmas I was shopping at Countdown. On exiting the southern access/exit my car wheel dropped into a large pothole. I’m aware all businesses are busy at Christmas so I assumed it would be attended to after the silly season. On March 9, on exiting Countdown, the same hole was there but bigger.

Come on Countdown! There must be a few dollars in the maintenance budget for a few shovels of cold mix before the pothole becomes a sinkhole!

Just ask at the checkout and they will give you a map of how to get out of the exit pothole . . . . You'll need it.

    Do you agree that ratepayers in the city and on the Flats should subsidise some of the spending on rural roads in the district?
