Potholes put our horses in danger

Potholes – Chris Lazell is worried

Potholes – Chris Lazell is worried

First published in Echo News by

HORSERIDERS are pushing for Essex County Council to fix dangerous potholes along popular routes in Benfleet and Thundersley.

Chris Lazell, 63, runs a horse riding school in Daws Heath and insists the roads in and around Bramble Road in Benfleet are in a terrible state.

Mrs Lazell, who lives in Daws Heath Road, is worried one of her horses will be seriously injured if the roads are not fixed.

She said: “After all the bad weather, the amount of potholes that have popped up is unbelievable and it is dangerous.

“I have been in touch with the council regarding the issue and so far nothing has been done about it. I was told they would fix the potholes by the end of March, and they’re still in a really bad state.”

Last week the Echo reported horseriders raised concerns about the state of bridleways across Benfleet.

Residents said numerous paths had been in use for 40 years and have not been maintained – making them dangerous.

Mrs Lazell says her horses now need to ride in certain parts of the road to avoid potholes, but Essex County Council says it has “no specific date” for when repairs will be carried out.

She said: “We have hundreds of horses, and it’s really dangerous for them.

“Somebody will have an accident and is that when they will do something about it? It’s absolutely disgusting. The horses have to ride in the middle of the road because it is that bad.”

Mrs Lazell insists she has been in touch with the council over this, but has so far received no help.

She said: “I have called the council on this issue so many times, but nothing is being done. They’ve only managed to fix one pothole in St Michaels Road and another in Bramble Crescent.

“We’re not only even talking about horses and riders; – we’re also talking about dog walkers and cyclists. I’m fed up and these roads need to be fixed.”

An Essex Highways spokesman said: “Following inquiries from residents, Essex Highways inspectors visited the site in March and noted three repairs that need to be carried out.

“There is no specific date of when the repairs will be completed.”

Bramble Crescent and Poors Lane North are not just bridle ways, they are also used by the residents who live there. If it was just one deep pot hole, then you'd just go round it, but the roads are riddled with them!

Couple of months ago, new tarmac was laid in places, but this is now crumbling because of the half arsed job that was done, in the next 6 months, I suspect that it's going to look worse than it did originally.

Perhaps when they start paying to use the roads like the rest of us then they've got cause to complain. Clear up their horses dung from the roads, should be something they should be doing instead of snootily riding off and leaving it there for others to have to clean. They always bang on about we want this, we want that because we're entitled horse riders, your not that innocent i've seen the state you all leave grassy areas & football pitches after you've finished gallivanting all over them you have no consideration for others, so why should we consider you. Next time i pass a horse & rider i'll sound my horn that'll give you something else to moan about.

Bloody cyclists!
How many more times do we have to hear the "Road Tax" story ? Vehicle Excise Duty does NOT fund road repairs. Essex County Council funds the road repairs from Council Tax. So even if you ride a bike, or a horse, come to that, and work and pay council tax, you have paid for your right to get potholes repaired. It is NOT just car drivers (and yes I am a car driver, and a cyclist) who pay for the roads.

now I am a proud owner of 2 horses, I like in the Thundersley area and the roads are in shambles. no we don't pay road tax, but wait if you took your driving test which is clearly obvious as you are car drivers it states in the Highway code Horses have right of way over cars, why? because they were on the roads before cars were, I understand its frustrating when your stuck behind a horse on the road as a rider you want to get off the road as quickly as possible we don't want to be on it any longer than we have too as we do not want to be on the road with idiot drivers that don't have no common courtesy for 5 mins. people on here saying ill be coming at horses with my horn ect.. more for you because you wont be thinking that's a good idea when you will be paying for your own damage on your car and not only have you just committed a criminal offence you caused the damage by beeping your horn trying to purposely scare the horses, so yes you may scare some horse But jokes on you when your funding out your own pocket to get your car fixed but also your insurance will be paying for the vet bills if the horse has become injured, and its not like your average dog horses cost 1000s and 1000s so wind your necks in all this woman is trying to do is get the roads fixed so its safe for riders, cyclists and drivers! and one day have a think when you want to beep at a horse or roar up behind them because if a horse don't damage your car a rider will for being such a dick
Couldnt have said it better myself. WELL DONE!
