Isn’t that a stretch that island roads completely resurfaced not long ago?

There are a lot of places where their work has failed early, sagging and cracking up where no repairs to the sub layers were made, while it was uncovered during the works.

Maybe island roads realised that this is a stupid time to close a main route in the holiday period.

Also, nobody seems to have announced the change. This shows a lack of consideration to the public.

Have given up reporting areas of resurfaced road that have failed. Don’t think they can be bothered
