SH35: A pothole paradise

LETTER

I just want to let whanau on the Coast know that the “pothole crews” are working their way up the Coast. On Wednesday they were this side of Tolaga Bay. So Potaka, they might arrive in your rohe by Labour Weekend, if you’re lucky.

I just wonder why there’s no signage or cones to alert people to them. We drove to town on Monday night, and hit at least a dozen potholes. It’s a huge safety issue, because you’re now trying to dodge them to protect your vehicle.

I also noticed that where previous holes have been filled in, the whole sealing patch has given way. Is this because of a poor mix?

Not only do you want your potholes fixed you want the job done properly. Get a grip, you seem to be under the impression you're living in the first world! You'll have to wait for the name change to kick in before you can expect that status.
