I agree that the state of Cheltenham roads is unacceptable and that Gloucestershire County Council has failed since it took charge of highway maintenance in 2007. 

I therefore urge Shire Hall to give responsibility for road maintenance back to the people of Cheltenham, via the Borough Council.

    I travel a great deal and am shocked at the state of Cheltenham’s roads – quite the worst in Europe!

    Cycling at in the dark and especially in wet weather is extremely dangerous – often impossible to see potholes and even when I can, it’s too difficult to swerve due to the traffic behind.

    Like the way we now colour code the potholes ; yellow for last year, white the year before etc. although nothing gets done about them at least they look pretty. Suggestion, put a point score next to them and make it into an interesting game!

    I have no confidence in Glos County Council sorting this problem. They’ve just made a royal mess up of it from day one and are now so far behind they’ve all but admitted they will never fix it. We need to take control of this or we will need a pothole summit every month just to fix the top 10 biggest holes in the town.

    The roads are in an appalling state. My son was followed by the police while riding his moped because they thought he was weaving around the road. After following him for a while they realised he was avoiding potholes! Very dangerous for motorcycles. Doesn’t inspire confidence in the ability of the county council. Cheltenham roads were never good but this is appalling and dangerous. The quality of repairs is such that the problem recurs very quickly, wasting taxpayers money.

    We need urgent repairs that last.
