Good News For Roman Bank & Peckover Roads
You’ll remember that after extensive lobbying <ahem> the Conservative County Council promised extra cash for local roads in my old division earlier this year? I wrote a blog post about it just after I last the election in May. Well, they’ve stayed true to their word, I’m pleased to say, and we’ve got the additional funds as promised.
County Council press Release:
Work starts on July 29 to carry out the £530,000 project on the A1101 North End, Leverington Road and Sutton Road in the town. The work is expected to take around five weeks to complete with day time and night-time working.
The working hours will be Monday to Friday 9.30 am-3.30 pm on weekdays and then between 8.00 pm-6.00 am from Monday nights to the early hours of Saturday with road closure in place for one stage of the works. There will be no daytime or night time working at weekends.
A night-time road closure and signed diversion via A1101, A17, A47 and A1101 will be in effect from August 12-17 whilst we resurface Sutton Road carriageway.
When we resurface North End / Leverington Road, from August 19-31, this will be done under traffic lights and convoy vehicle, but delays are to be expected. At other times during the day vehicles will be controlled by traffic lights. Access to properties and businesses will be maintained at all times.
Work includes repair and resurfacing of the roads, replacement and repairs to drain covers and ironwork in the road, footpath and kerb repairs, new white lining and road studs and drainage gulleys will also be cleared and cleaned when the repair and improvement work is complete.
