A reader calls attention to the condition of the narrow thoroughfare at the bottom of Eastbourne Road, and which is locally referred to as “the ditch”. Building operations are proceeding in the immediate vicinity, but whether this fact has anything to do with the state the lane has lapsed into we do not know. Our informant says the mud is two or three inches deep and the place for a long stretch a quagmire. He suggests that a few loads of gravel would bring about an improvement much to be desired, and doubtless official attention will be given to the grumble.
