Resident names and shames "disgraceful and dangerous" roads in Calderdale

It appears that the 'patching' of Calderdale's roads starts with someone with a can of white paint, painting a circle around what the painter deems to be a hole, needful of being filled with tarmac.

"All the roads mentionedin Calderdale are in a disgraceful, dangerous condition"

Someone follows and “fills” the marked holes.

This “treatment” has been given to Bridge End, Rastrick and Claremount Road, Halifax.

The painters were obviously blind; there are now as many unfilled holes as filled ones on these two roads.

On another journey, within the Calderdale boundary, I ventured recently over into Bacup on the A681 from Todmorden.

This takes first prize as the read nearest to the surfaces of roads in Tanzania, which I have visited five times in recent years.

All the roads mentioned in Calderdale are in a disgraceful, dangerous condition.
