SIR, - Having read several articles in your newspaper about the condition of the road repairs in St Albans I wish to agree with all the sentiments expressed and draw your readers' attention to the appalling state of Valley Road.
On many occasions I have seen cyclists travelling to and from St Albans Girls School weaving in and out of traffic trying to avoid the potholes and pitted surfaces. This is particularly dangerous as the road is the main route used by articulated lorries visiting the industrial estate at Porters Wood and Soothouse Spring. I have written to the council a number of times regarding this matter pointing out the distinct possibility of a fatality and potential for ensuing litigation but to no avail.
Finally, the junction of Valley Road with Beech Road at the intersection of King William traffic lights is especially treacherous and so you can imagine how incensed I was to learn that although resurfacing was being carried out within yards of this area, nothing happened. With heavy plant and equipment on site, surely this would have made economic sense.
