Good News For Wesham and Surrounding Roads

County Councillor Liz Oades is delighted that more highways works are programmed to be carried out this year, in her Fylde East division. With excellent co-operation from Weshams’ Fylde Borough Councillor, Cllr Mrs Linda Nulty, and Wesham Town Council, many areas have been identified that will be included in the programme.
Councillor Oades, since being elected over 2 years ago, has worked with the highway department to get a rolling programme of works carried out in her Ward and is pleased that more road/footway treatments are added each year, she believes that regular maintenance is essential to ensure that roads and pavements are kept in a good state of repair and hopes that future budgets for highways will be increased and not cut.

Wesham will have slurry treatment to footways, re-kerbing, with some additional dropped pedestrian crossings, where work allows, to Garstang Road South and Segar Street, Railway Terrace, Charnock Street, Thompson Street, Rawlinson Street, Porter Street East, Billington Street East, Garstang Road South, Garstang Road North/Station Road.

The surrounding areas will include:
The Treales village centre along Kirkham Road, Treales, is to be resurfaced.
Newton with Clifton will get more dropped kerbs installed on Oak Lane, Meadow Close and Bryning Lane/ School Lane, and the carriageway on Preston Old Road and Meadow Close are to be resurfaced/patched.
There are plans to undertake surface slurry sealing treatment to footways in Kirkham in Ward Street, Fylde Street, Ribby Road, Moor Street, Swarbrick Street and Orders Lane, and Poulton Street/other streets will be assessed for possible future footway works.
