ROAD: A terrible state of repair for years

I can’t understand why the condition of York Road, where it meets the top of Oxford Street, in Whitley Bay remains in such a bad state.

It really has been in quite a terrible state for quite some years now.

I have to say I’ve honestly had smoother crossings over the Irish Sea than when driving from York Road and turning right at the top of Oxford Street.

I’ve not brought this up sooner as I kept on thinking this must have been noted for repairs, but alas, it would seem that this is not the case, even though the Whitley Bay offices of North Tyneside Council are a mere stone’s throw away from what must be in the running for the worst section of road in North Tyneside.
