Just look at the state of the road in this picture.“The council comes out time after time and does a temporary job but it is just as bad a few weeks later.“We appreciate money is tight but we pay our road taxes like everyone else and yet we are driving on third world roads.“It is bad enough that we have to navigate these horrific roads every day but now our children are being put out and that is just not on.” School driver forced to leave students at roadside because of potholed road was last modified: February 6th, 2018 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:potholesroadSt Johnstonlast_img
