COUNCILLORS and highway engineers at the new Cheshire West and Chester Council could be in for a bumpy ride.
Upton Conservative Cllr Jill Houlbrook has challenged them to get closer to the problems of pot holes on local roads.
And they will need their bikes to cope with the campaigning councillor’s concerns.
Environment portfolio holder Cllr Neil Ritchie (Con, Broxton) and highways and transportation chief Richard Turley are among those she has contacted.
“'I would like to invite you all to join me on a cycle ride around Upton ward,” said Cllr Houlbrook, a renowned campaigner who has the state of Chester’s council run loos among her scalps.
“ The aim is to get closer to the problem of the dreaded state of the roads and the number of pot holes that can be found”.
She added:“Having recently unearthed my bike it has become even more apparent just how risky cycling is when having to negotiate the lumps and dips many of which have to be approached with extreme caution.
“I also feel this is an environmentally friendly way to prove to our residents we do care about the roads”.
