Complaining about Damaged Road


The road got damaged a long ago and nothing has been done about it. Write a letter to the municipal authority complaining about the damaged road.

In your letter:

  • introduce yourself
  • explain the condition of the road
  • and suggest what they should do

Write at least 150 words.

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ...........,


Dear Sir or Madam,

I live near Elm Street. My name is Bruce Willis, my mailing address is 56 Elm Street.

Every day I drive down Elm Street on my way to work. Near 74 Elm Street three months ago there appeared a deep hole. This is a danger to traffic. Over all these three months, road services have not performed any action to rectify the situation. As a result, the hole has increased and now covers the entire lane. The current condition of the road does not allow vehicles to move with a speed of more than 10 km/h, which leads to the formation of traffic jams during rush hours.

I ask you to immediately send a repair team to repair the roadway. I request that the road be returned to a working condition, as our money was collected for transport tax.

With regards,

Bruce Willis
