Better way to spend cash

Have your say

I was amazed to read that the council is proposing major road works in the city centre.

Benefits will be a reduction in travelling distance from the Wheatsheaf to the bridge of 60% and wait for it,40% from Wearmouth Bridge to Roker – how exciting is that?

After the 15 months turmoil of changes to other roads in the area, which have done absolutely nothing to journey times, this is the last thing Sunderland need.

Apparently, there is £4million pot available from somewhere – might I suggest that this could be much better spent on the A690 Stoneygate junction problem.
