I AM surprised at the number of people who are writing to complain about the gritting or apparent lack of it recently in Pontefract.
I cannot be the only person who thinks there was more effort put into gritting this year.
This is the first year that I noticed gritters driving past my house and this happened a few times. The road is not even a bus route and it was much appreciated as I live near a slight bend which is a cause for concern every winter.
I even had to venture out a couple of times during the bad weather and do honestly believe the councillors when they say they put more effort and money into gritting this year.
We would all like 100 per cent of roads gritted but have to recognise this is not possible. I have always wanted our road to be gritted but only after major roads have been treated.
