Potholes urgently needed!

Dear Editor,

It would seem that Roehampton Close and avenue have been abandoned by all the relevant authorities. There are hardly any road signs and that stretch of road has been turned into a bike and motor car 'test circuit' for the Dover and Daytona raceways during the day, and more so at night.

The exhaust system of some motor cars and bikes, which seem to have been modified for excessive loudness, blast as the vehicles go up and down the street, oblivious of the fact that residents would wish to relax and enjoy some quiet time in their homes. There is also no due regard for road safety regulations.

Despite writing to the relevant authorities, the senseless and excessive speeding and loud noise continues. In order to reduce speeding on that stretch of road I am requesting that the National Works Agency either allows potholes to develop or create some potholes on the road. On the other hand, they could put in some 'sleeping policemen' or speed reducers as they have done on Charlemont Drive, Hope Pastures and Hamilton Drive.

As residents, we are hoping that the relevant authorities will do something quickly to avert any danger as the road is being used as a 'race track'
