MORE than 800 people have now signed a petition to encourage resurfacing work on a main road into Selby.

The petition was set up in July by Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty, to repair the surface of the Selby bypass on Wednesday, and within 36 hours, more than 250 people had added their names to it.

Now, the total stands at 801, and Mr Adams said he hoped the petition could help force North Yorkshire County Council and its partners to get together and improve the holes and bumps in the current surface.

Old- selebian I do want the bypass to be repaired not just resurfaced as I believe that the problems are more than “skin deep”. However, I would have thought that the local MP would have had influence with the County Council and Government (both Tory run) to get some movement on the roadwork; rather than run a Facebook petition. No doubt if the issue was Cricket related the MP would put more effort in to it
