REGARDING your page 3 story last week about the state of the road surface along a stretch of the A30/A303. May I say that this is the second time that areas of the A30/A303 between Stopgate and Honiton have been in such absolutely disgraceful condition, where layers of road surface are breaking up. If these roads were outside the Houses of Parliament or Buckingham Palace they would never be left to get in such a dangerous state. Councillor Hughes did not say if he saw the areas along the A30/A303 that floods. This happens year after year. Also he may have been lucky not to be using the road when there are accidents and the build-up of traffic queues some times for one or two miles, many using our rural lanes as a diversion route, some causing damage to property. When parts of the M5 motorway are blocked, we also have to cope with the diversion traffic as well. We are the second main route to the South West of England and, in a few years, we are having new towns and many from other countries will be here for the Olympic Games. At least we should do well in the long jump. We must have the most potholes to practice with. D Manley Rawridge
