Is the Aberaman Councillor Cherry Picking a £24,000 Road Repair before the May Elections?
Posted by Lewis on the 22nd February 2008
Anyone driving around Rhondda Cynon Taf has had been confronted with large potholes on major and primary roads throughout the county borough.
The Council’s latest road improvement projects are continuing to spread throughout the county borough an estimated £500K is being spent, Aberaman Bridge to Gasworks Road £60,000, High Street Hirwaun £45,000, B4275 Gadlys to Cwmdare phase one £85,000 and A4059 at Penderyn £60,000.
I can understand the local authority spending on roads that are well used, but to spend £24,000 in Holford Street Aberaman you have to ask the question why and what is the motive?
Let’s not forget the local elections in May it would seem the local councillor hasn’t, is he buying local votes? He lives in the adjoining street.
So think on, next time you curse and shout at the state of our roads ask the question, do local councillors think of themselves or what actually requires attention, I think it is called prioritising not a word in councillors vocabulary.
