ROAD RAGE NEWS!
The battering from traffic taken by the B6325 as it snakes up to Barmoor Corner is as nothing to the treatment meted out by Northumbria Water this spring and summer. We are all eager to see whether or not a new hole will be required to mend yet another problem uncovered [or covered up] by the attempt to bring water to our thirsty community.
I am told by a source close to Northumberland County Council [our former Councillor, Dougie Watkin] that Northumberland is only too well aware that the road surface requires special care when driving, and that when they are sure that Northumbria Water has finished with the road, they will resurface it properly. Obviously no-one wants to see a new surface immediately broken up by more diggers and rollers.
