Fylde MP Mark Menzies has noted and remarked on the state of the roads here on the Fylde. Commenting on the condition of Links Gate, he said that Lancashire County Councils own team admit that the road is ‘scabby’.
The Tory MP has shared his thoughts, saying, ‘Too many Fylde roads, like Links Gate, are in poor condition and desperately in need of repair and renewal. Patching just is not enough. Lancashire County Council’s own team admit the road here, serving homes, a school and a world class major championship golf course is ‘scabby’. It is not good enough, a message I have put across loud and clear to highways managers. We need improvements not excuses.’
Others have questioned the priorities in the need for road repairs.
Owen Ronald Houghton said, ‘That road is mainly used by residents. It’s basically a back street that no one uses and not in that bad a state. All it need is the cheap surface dressing. There are loads of road around Fylde that need more work doing which are a higher priority. St.Thomas’ which is literally a 2 minute walk from there which is in a right mess needs resurfacing urgently.’
Glenn Myerscough replied, ‘That road looks like brand new compared to ours. I live on Balmoral, everyone on the street is complaining, they have been for years!’ Nick Moore added, ‘That looks pristine compared to the southern end of Peel Road!’
