    Well they dont do risk assessments.

    They quote Health and Safety yet have no risk assessments

    A hazard = something with the Potential to cause harm

    A risk =the chance of it happening

    To minimise the risk you do a risk assessment

    So if Leader stated it was a health and safety risk for public to walk through the council car park

    Which is why they resurfsced it

    Then where is the risk assessment that backs this up.
    And then where are the ones for Salop road and Tesco

    Which according to their own guidelines get fixed ( filed ) if they are so dangerous to pose a risk.

    22K to resurface the car park

    They have no funding for other things

    What can 22k get you

    A Home carer for a Year. Many front line staff for a Year and still have funding to ” Fill the holes ” with a ” bucket of tar “and tap tap tap down with a spade

    Oh yes forgot the bucket of tar they dont cost that so thats Free

    But cant have a Patchwork quilt at the Guildhall can we chaps

    No way thats just not cricket

    If they resurfaced the Councillors Car Park on the grounds of health and safety how come the pot holes at the entrance to the Library Car Park are not resurfaced based on the same criteria? Councillors have to drive over those to get to their new super smooth parking spaces so they must all be aware of them !

    Is it possible the contractors made a mistake and did the wrong car Park?

    On the Email i recieved i was promised that the council car park wasnt getting resurfaced but the entrance was.

    On offical complaint wcbc inforned me that they had no plans in March to resurface it.

    Estate roads are getting priority over main roads, surely the Highways department realise it is the main roads that take the brunt of heavy HGV lorries wear and tear not estate roads. The sink hole is already reappearing on Salop Road and the craters at the junction of Chester Road and Grove Road are back for what must be the fifth time. When will these major routes get a proper repair like Milebarn Road ?

    The Sink hole was Never fixed correctly.

    The Massive Crator is re appearing

    Yet they claim to check the road Monthly.

    How then if checked monthly doesn it take excess of 4 months to fill it.

    Salop road is NOT PLANNED for a Resurface. Major link road.

    Cause ir may cause disruption.

    They can resurface in 5 days had 5 days ( infact actually had 10 ) when Saloo road was Linked to virgin Media

    There is adamge drain yet they have NOT AS YET been in contact with Water baord to arrang it to be fixed.

    But its fine

    They have a Nice New car park

    So let me get this straight they plan to cut £374,000 from the road maintenance budget annually, but in April they stated there’s currently a £50m backlog of potholes to repair.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-47908714

    That’s going to work well then. Is the strategy to instead of worrying about the costs spiralling towards hundreds of millions, we just strike off vast miles of road in Wrexham when they get damaged to the extent that they no longer look or function as roads.

    They also had from WAG £750.000 This year and same next year.

    Also wCBC state they follow the guidelines of Highways agency

    So have their guidelines gone down

    Cause Doing very little on Repair and saying you will do less means they will do Nithing
