Underwater roads

First published in Letters by

YOUR article of August 8 – “Cleaning cuts may worsen floods risk” – was very interesting and timely.

I read it having just walked from Spurriergate to High Petergate following heavy lunchtime rain. Most roads along the route were partially underwater and usually at the places where the (blocked) road gulleys are located.

Can councillors Alexander and Levene please explain what the priorities are in respect of York’s roads?

Is it to have them all properly maintained or is it to neglect the bulk of them in order to spend our taxes on such things as King’s Square and the route of the Grand Départ?

Neil Raw, Oriel Grove, Clifton Without, York.

I want them to spend money on things that improve York as a tourist destination and bring money into the city. Lets face it, tourism is massive in York, who cares if a few roads flood a little when it rains? The more money comes in, the more businesses, more rates etc etc.

Two things- gwen4me - gwen for me - im not called gwen any more than you are called wall. Secondly we were flooded out when we lived in jubilee terrace leeman road. There is a difference between a few blocked gullies and two foot of smelly water in your kitchen and living room.

You haven't a clue have you? One thing leads to another. The difference is `blocked gullies`.

I don't think writing a letter to the Conservative supporting Press is going to get you an answer on this.
