Sterling Lyon Parkway - A Rough Patch of Road

The Sterling Lyon Parkway, looking east from Shaftesbury just before it was twinned. By the way, all that woodland beside the road...is gone.

I am not the only one who has noticed it. Here is a brand new stretch of road and it is not concrete but asphalt. It is also rough, uneven in places and looks like a crappy job.

I have phoned the councillor to see if she has driven down the stretch as it has just opened. They probably think it is good enough. It certainly doesn't feel good enough given that traffic is only going to increase as IKEA goes up in several months.

Any inspector see this yet?

I would like to hear the rationale behind that one. With all the wear and tear that route is going to take, you'd expect it to be built to a high standard.

I called the councillor this morning. We'll see if there is a fix in sight.
