With regards to the article in the Grantham Journal on January 15 – concerning damage to the verges in Keats Avenue outside the Tesco Express store.
I actually passed by very shortly after the Lincolnshire County Council workers put down fresh topsoil – and what a surprise, a car drove on to and parked on the repaired verge.
Undoubtedly, lorries and heavy vehicles cause a lot of constant damage to the verges and kerb stones, but who in their right mind decided it was a good idea to cover the churned up mess with top soil?
The only sensible solution, which is patently obvious to me, is to cover the verges with tarmac.
