There are plenty of road surfaces appearing on the Southside (e.g. Gowrie, Fadden, Chisholm) with the new, cheap, loose gravel on tar method of re-surfacing.
This is a noisy surface that increases tyre road noise, produces a poor ride especially with firm sports suspension and this is a surface that leaves loose gravel for weeks/months.
There is a safety issue that has crept in, that is I can see that road markings are not being painted for a long time after the job, presumably waiting for the surface to settle and for the gravel to clear.
I’m pretty sure we all pay enough in car registration and taxes to deserve a better service from ACT TAMS.
