Good news for Woodbridge residents. Dates for repairing these roads have been finalised. And they are still – just– in this financial year as promised – although disgracefully right at the last moment, finishing within a week of the end of the financial year. Any more ‘slippage’ KMG and you’d be over the edge and fail to meet your promised target!
Warwick Avenue is due to be resurfaced on 24th March 2015, over 4 days. Haugh Lane will be resurfaced on 23rd March, over 4 days.
Both roads are old concrete slab roads which have severely deteriorated. SCC Highways had previously considered in-situ recycling but it turned out that the slabs contained steel reinforcement, making this impossible. (This explains the delay to work which had been scheduled for November. ) SCC’s contractor KMG are bringing in a specialist surfacing contractor who will remove any asphalt overlay, repair the joints between the slabs, repair any damaged concrete and then overlay with a high strength asphalt overlay.
Let us hope this is a satisfactory end to several years of lobbying- by myself and the residents of Warwick Avenue and Haugh Lane!
