  • Think a road sweeper was used along this area this morning proving that a more effective solution needs to be found to clear the road of mud and other debris from the quarry and builders lorries using roads through the village. The sweeper just leaves a dangerous layer of mud on the surface, and zero traction for road users (especially bikes). Issue is compounded by the numerous blocked highway drains across the village. These problems have been reported many times recently.
