You can almost hear the collective cries of Westhoughton residents.
We are all fed up with the state of our roads and footpaths. They are quite frankly SHAMEFUL and our town has been badly neglected by Bolton Council – especially when you learn of the eye-watering levels of cash spent on improving Bolton town centre.
Fear not! Westhoughton campaigners David Wilkinson and Derek Gradwell are fighting for a better deal.
David and Derek have been reporting potholes all over Westhoughton on a daily basis thanks to a small army of My Westhoughton readers telling us about dodgy roads and footpaths near them.
David Wilkinson said: “Westhoughton taxpayers are paying just as much as Bolton taxpayers so it is incredibly frustrating to see Bolton town centre having perfectly good footpaths ripped up and replaced with even more expensive paving stones, while in Westhoughton we have potholes and broken footpaths galore.
“We are fighting hard to change the situation. Westhoughton deserves to get a fair deal from Bolton Council.”
