Paxman Avenue is one of the roads in Shrub End I have been requesting a re surface on for years. Indeed as County Councillor for Shrub End and Berechurch I am very active campaigning for better roads, paths and Kerbs in my area.

So first I was pleased to see the works begin in Paxman Ave, with the first step of taking off the top layer of tarmac, and it is usual a day or two later it is relaid with a new long lasting coat of top surface.

But, then it all goes wrong with a delay due defects under the surface, meaning we are stuck with a really bad and rough surface for weeks.

I have complained and I urged the powers that be to get it sorted quickly

King George Road

Road defects campaign

I have repeatedly requested the poor road surface to be fixed along King George Road.

With many roads in Colchester needing a resurface, this area is one particularly bad example

This month I have again written in another request for urgent action.

The area was made worse by lots of lorries whilst new houses were built just off King George Road .

Here’s hoping my plea does not fall on deaf ears
