Who would have thought filling in a pothole could be so complicated?
When residents of Mabel Street contacted Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson to ask him for help in getting their road repaired, he was only too happy to help.
But his request was greeted with this response from Bolton Council:
“I can confirm the inspector has attended site and created a Work Order for the asset management team to consider on a future work programme.”
David said: “Talk about going round the houses. It wouldn’t take long to get this bit of road filled in but instead we are faced with weeks of delays. If it were Bolton town centre, no doubt it would be done in a flash.”
