Push for trades

Every time we have a heavy downpour of rain, the newly constructed road outside St Barnabas House hospice, in Titnore Lane, floods, causing traffic to move into the middle section of the road.

Also, the eastbound dual carriageway between Yeoman roundabout and Centenary House roundabout at the Boulevard has flooded for over a year now, causing traffic to brake sharply and move to the inner lane.

I hope the education secretary Michael Gove keeps pushing for students to take up core skills such as roads building and civil engineering, as we seem to have lost two generations of that dedicated workforce.
