National campaign

editorial image

I have put up an national e-petition on the government’s website to try to address years of underfunding in the UK road network, and would like to urge your readers to sign. We need to get more than 100,000 signatures before they consider discussion in the House of Commons.

It takes less than two mins to do. I am using the power of local newspapers to support this national campaign as you are much closer to your readers and the problems they face each day due to the plague of potholes/bad roads.

So, don’t moan about the hole sign the e-petition at

Thanks for supporting this campaign.
