  1. Alot of the road surfaces mentioned do not require a full surface redress .
    All they need are new markings give way lines zig zag yellow lines etc.
    This is WBC spending the last of last year’s money to a kid the Government holding the amount back from this year’s Budget .
    Once again WBC throwing the residents money away !
