I REFER to your article regarding the traffic calming project in the Smith Drive area of Warrington.

Last year the Government gave every council more money to spend on repairing pot holes and road surfaces. The road surfaces around the Smith Drive area are in good condition.

Yet in other areas of the town the roads are in an awful state of repair so where has the money WBC was given to make these repairs gone to?

Certainly not on maintaining the roads that it was intended for.

This traffic calming project is just a rouse to keep the labour local councillors in power by sweetening the constituents.
