Loose chippings on A4185 Rowstock to Chilton

Despite your previous reply saying that no action is necessary, this DOES need addressing.

The recent surface dressing has left a LARGE amount of loose chippings on the road surface. It is particularly bad as you leave Rowstock roundabout and go up the hill toward Chilton where the road dressing was started, but in general the whole stretch of road is bad.

The recent rainfall has made things even worse.

I for one am getting fed up with my paintwork and windscreen being hit on a daily basis by chips flying up from vehicles in front of me. It's only a matter of time before someone's windscreen is damaged.

  • Sigh. I seem to be dealing with a bunch of plonkers who probably haven't even bothered taking a look or give a toss about our roads.

  • I'm currently not using this stretch of road as I don't want my car paintwork damaged. Cars are expensive things and need looking after, please respect people property and get the road swept. Many thanks.
