Survey reveals residents want road and pavement repairs

Refuse collection in the Royal Borough gets widespread public approval in a new survey, although the state of the roads and pavements gets a definite thumbs down.

More than 800 people living in the borough responded to a postal questionnaire. Almost 60 per cent were happy with the way the Royal Borough is run and 88 per cent praised the weekly rubbish collections.

But road and pavement repairs were a different story, as 45 per cent of respondents demanded improvements.

The authority has announced £1.4million will be spent on roads this financial year, as well as £100,000 in footway repairs.

Traffic congestion in the borough and inadequate public transport also bothered people, although the authority's recycling programme and its parks and open spaces came second and third in the popularity stakes.

Council leader Cllr David Burbage (Con, Bray) said this week that the survey would be referred to when decisions were made in the future about how to spend taxpayers' money.
