Residents have chip on shoulder over crumbling road
3:00pm Sunday 10th March 2013 in News
FEARS have been raised police cannot rush to emergencies from their station because a road surface is so terrible.
Angry residents claim Mistley police, based in New Road, are being forced to creep to call outs for fear of loose chippings on the road hitting parked cars and pedestrians.
Essex County Council resurfaced the road last autumn but it has deteriorated rapidly and needs to be covered again.
Drivers have been counting the cost to their vehicles and said the gravel has now become a danger to pedestrians and cyclists.
