Wesham Road resurfacing continues......

Lancashire County Councils, Fylde East Councillor, Liz Oades is delighted that more highways works are being carried out in Wesham. Following the recent re-surfacing of Garstang Rd South, the long awaited work on Garstang Road North is scheduled to be commenced on 6th March until 13th March. Some inconvenience is inevitable, with single carriageway operation and temporary traffic lights, but the end result will be well worth it.
Station Road is scheduled to be completed at the start of the new financial year.
Following excellent co-operation from Weshams’ Fylde Borough Councillor, Cllr Mrs Linda Nulty, and Wesham Town Council, many areas were previously identified that are now being completed. Since being elected over 3 years ago, Cllr Oades has worked with the LCC 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. Cllr Oades also commented that the County Council has added an extra £5.746 million in the 2008/09 year with a further £5.218 million allocated for the following two years.

Been one of those that has had to replace a damaged wheel caused by the broken road surface, I can't wait for the work to be completed. There are now more holes than there is road. However this is nothing compared to other battered byways in the Fylde area - try to drive towards Preston and not hit the numerous holes dotted around.
