Dear Sir,

Road works on Durham Way South on the Aycliffe Business Park are hampering entry to the road leading down to my shop. It can look as if the road is closed, but it isn’t, so please don’t give up!

It is just a typical road works job, dig a long trench, fence it off for weeks, with no sign of workmen or work being completed.

These road works are having an adverse affect on the businesses at the Incubation Centre and units beside, who pay to rent their premises. Why not hire Japanese road workers, they would have the job complete in a week?

Customers and donors for Honest John are encouraged to ignore what it looks like as entry is still available and I am open SEVEN days a week.
