Your neighbour Fred Speelburg, residing at Park Society in London's Springfield Meadows area is facing difficulty in writing a letter to the municipal commissioner of the Municipal Corporation of your city. Help him complete this letter.

33 Springfield Meadows

Date: 17 June 2022

The Commissioner,
Municipal Corporation of Downing Street,

Sub:- Miserable Condition of roads

Respected Sir,
I would like to bring to your kind notice the miserable condition of roads in my locality, Springfield meadows area, Downing Street, London. The roads are broken at many places. As a result, vehicles cannot move smoothly.
The buses, trucks, cars, three-wheelers, have to halt after every five to six seconds just to adjust with the road breaks and pits. It has been repeatedly brought to the notice of the commission, but all in vain.
There is always a traffic problem on the roads. The first showers of monsoon will put the things in its worst shape. The residents are in deep distress on this account and they have repeatedly expressed their resentment through the press as well as through written complaints but nothing has so far been done.
People had also staged demonstration last month and the authorities assured them of necessary action in the matter, but so far, all the assurances have remained mere assurances. I request you to get the roads repair and constructed without any further delay lest the anger of the public should explode.
