"During the recent stormy weather a young motorist was lucky to escape when a tree came down on the car he was travelling in just outside of Bridgetown village," Mr Roche said. "This occurred on is regularly a busy road on a Saturday afternoon. It was a miracle that the young man wasn't seriously injured. The next time this happens we might not be so lucky. Two other local roads were blocked by fallen trees on the same day."
"Local Council workers need to be commended for the hard work they put in to clear these roads and they are doing everything in their power to keep the roads cut back and safe. The problem is that funding is not been made available by the powers that be to tackle this issue head on."
"Roadside trees and foliage that poses a threat to the public need to be identified and safely removed before a life is lost in a terrible accident. Everyone knows that money is tight but I would like to know exactly what cost will put on a life by our local Councillors?"
