It’s no secret that Great Britain is facing a serious problem. The state of our roads is increasingly bad, causing people to put constant pressure on the authorities to do something about it.
Although Manchester is a great place to be, we can’t deny the fact that our roads are less than ideal. People are constantly complaining about the state of our roads, which has been deteriorating over the years.
Not only do motorists have to battle endless potholes on daily basis but additional problems are beginning to emerge, like the increased number of sinkholes appearing late last year throughout the city centre.
According to latest figures, more motorists than ever before are making claims caused by poor roads. Potholes in particular are a nasty one, as they cause more damage to vehicles today than any other obstacle.
It’s perfectly clear that something needs to be done about this, however even though citizens have been pressuring the government to speed up its actions, they haven’t been lucky so far.
The truth is, our roads are so bad at the moment that it would cost a fortune to fix them all at once. It’s not ideal, however from the looks of it, we are going to have to deal with it.
Although some of the damage to our roads is caused by unsafe motorists, most of it is the result of extreme weather and years of neglect.
Late last year, for example, following some heavy rain a huge sinkhole appeared in the middle of the city centre, wreaking havoc and causing extreme delays.
We need to be more prepared for such events since they appear to be occurring more often.
Whether the government will finally take necessary steps to improve our roads, remains to be seen, however so far we’ve been promised a lot yet nothing has been done.
It’s definitely a serious issue that needs addressing as soon as possible, however the sheer scale of it suggests that it would be almost impossible to fix it overnight.
What do you think the government should do to improve our roads? Do you agree that more needs to be done? Let us know your thoughts and come back soon for more articles from Manchester Automotive.
