Lynne Featherstone MP exposes holes in Haringey Council’s road strategy

Lynne Featherstone MP has today expressed concern over Haringey Council’s strategy for repairing the Borough’s roads – by identifying numerous potholes in a road that the Council deem to be in ‘good condition.’

The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green and the Haringey Lib Dems ran a long campaign, frequently consulting residents on their road surfaces and repeatedly asking the Council for repairs.

The Labour-run Council then recently admitted that there is a major problem with potholes in the Borough, and indicated that they would take action on bad roads.

However, the Liberal Democrat MP exposed a document, from the Council, which indicates the conditions of individual roads in the Borough. One road that the Council marked as being in ‘general good condition’ – Cecile Park – is in fact riddled with potholes.

Commenting, Lynne Featherstone MP said:

“If the Council think that Cecile Park is in good condition, then I’m very sceptical about their plans for a ‘pothole blitz.’

“The Labour-run Council have neglected our roads for years, leaving them unsafe for both drivers and pedestrians. It’s about time they started taking this seriously, and conducted a new road survey to identify the areas that really need repair.

“The Lib Dems and I have been contacting residents directly and asking them where the worst potholes are. We’ve compiled a list and we’re sending the info on to the Council, to try and ensure that all the dangerous roads are repaired.”
