Sodbury campaigners have joined residents in welcoming news that a local road will be resurfaced later this month.
The council has confirmed that, weather permitting, the resurfacing work in Hartley Close, off St Johns Way, is scheduled to start on Monday 28th February.
Conservative-run South Gloucestershire Council has invested an extra £4m over the last two years to ensure more roads can be improved and this extra £2m investment is due to be repeated in 2011/12.
Sodbury Town Councillors, Paul and Wendy Whittle, said:
“The residents of Hartley Close have had real concerns about the state of the road surface, and we relayed this to the council.”
“We are pleased that the council has confirmed that their resurfacing team will be starting on Hartley Close in a few weeks time so as long as the weather isn’t too bad in the meantime.”
“We will continue to keep up the pressure for other Sodbury roads to be resurfaced too, like Gorlands Road and several others.”
Cllr Heather Goddard, Conservative Cabinet Member for Communities, added:
“Hartley Close is one of many roads in the local area to benefit from the council’s record investment in road resurfacing.”
