I had a motorbike crash this morning, on almost exactly the boundary line between Stockport and High Peak. I'm fine, and the damage to my bike is hopefully superficial. I wasn't the only one who came a cropper with 3 different cars sliding and crashing into others.
The road hadn't been gritted which contributed to all the crashes. I have seen the gritters from the High Peak side abandon their task approximately 500m before getting to the boarder, and I've never actually seen a gritter come from the Stockport side of things.
As it seems that both councils don't seem prepared to grit what they both deem a priority route, what would be the best course of action to persuade them that at least one of them should be putting some grit down? Surely there should be an arrangement whereby the boarder area is either done alternately by each council, or overlapped and done twice?
I've contacted Stockport in the past about the shocking state of repair of a number of their roads, and have been palmed off with "We'll send an engineer out to have a look"and no response back.
