Shoddy and unsafe workmanship on recently refurbished pavement

Around a fortnight ago the pavement was essentially “painted” with new tar after a hit and miss patching process had been completed. The tar has been laid so haphazardly that multiple service points , from water access points to internet have been “tarred” over. Clearly, in the case of emergency, this will not assist attending emergency services. Additionally, the quality of the tarring and the method used to lay it is so shoddy that it is already beginning to lift and cause potential trip hazards. Local engineers advise that, with the onset of winter frosts, the pavement breakdown is likely to accelerate, only weeks after it has been laid! I fail to see why this process has been employed on Clopton Road’s pavement, which are well used compared to, say, Jolyffe Park Road, yet the latter benefitted from proper ‘digging out’ and more traditional and hardwearing tarmac!? Our recently deceased and much missed local councillor, Keith Lloyd, who fought on our behalf for this pavement ‘improvement’ would be sadly disappointed with both the materials used and the poor quality of the workmanship. Immediate attention would be appreciated before the surface deteriorated further.
