Posted by Administrator : Wednesday 13th March 2013
LEAVING US IN A DITCH? Potholes are becoming more and more of a problem in Southend due to a lack of local maintenance funding and the changes in the UK weather. Potholes despite being seen as a miner problem they can affect so many drivers on a daily basis.
