I tried to explain to the resident that a puddle due to the council not cambering the road properly when they resurfaced it is a case of a road being in very good condition by the standards of Gipping Ward. The fact that they were very slapdash when resurfacing Dillwyn Street West to leave puddles at the end and left a bump in the road where they finished resurfacing Allenby Road because they couldn’t be bothered to have the hassle of repainting the stop line at the traffic lights is nothing to be concerned about in the forgotten ward of Gipping.
We have grass verges with bigger puddles than that after all.
Now obviously as all these deteriating roads are in Gipping Ward and are not main through routes, they are of no concern to Ipswich Borough Council. All those roads can end up like Ancaster Road as far as they are concerned. Gipping Ward needs a local resident representing it to stand up for the peoples interests.
Now there is one road in Gipping which is a through route that borders the ward of my fellow Tory Blogger James Spencer.
I guess part of the problem is that one side of the road is in the forgotten ward of Gipping. The state of Belstead Road is appalling by Bridge Ward standards but by Gipping ward standards its in good condition. But as I said, this is a main road and as it’s a main road, you’d think they would do something about it.
