Lib Dems backing local residents over roadworks

February 20, 2010 7:04 PM

Chris and Nick on Bohemia RoadLib Dem campaigner for Gensing Ward, Chris Benner, has written to Conservative County Councillor Matthew Lock demanding that he explains why there has been such chaos over the roadworks on Bohemia Road. To date he has not responded.

Chris has been door to door listening to local residents who are angry at the way the roadworks have been organised.

One resident could not believe that so many roads had been closed at the same time, which has affected car parking and access for emergency services.

Another, older resident, has not been able to get to her regular bus stop safely.

Chris says, "The roadworks have taken far too long, and the County Council has not listened to local people.

"You have two Labour councillors who do not seem to have made a difference. I pledge to put local people first."
