Pothole on Church Street

Bolton Council has failed to act one one of Church Street’s worst potholes.

Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson asked for the dangerous pothole near the church to be repaired urgently.

But the council’s highway bosses have said they check the road “every four weeks”.

David said: “Why should we have to wait four weeks? With the amount of traffic that goes through Church Street every day, this pothole should be repaired urgently.”

David has insisted that the council takes action quickly.

He has also launched a campaign to improve road safety across Westhoughton, which has been neglected by the council for years when it comes to maintaining our roads and footpaths.
