Roads Resurfaced

A few months ago, my Conservative colleagues and I pushed for Taywood Road to be resurfaced. You may recall that we had this road resurfaced not too long before we had to ask for it to be done again; so I thought I’d take a moment to explain what happened.

Basically, there was an underlying fault in the road subsurface. I can’t say whether this was something that should have been spotted at the time or whether it’s due to a fault from a cause that couldn’t have been detected. Whatever the reason, the substructure of the road had degraded and as a result the road surface was falling apart because it wasn’t being held up properly any more.

I’m very happy to report that the new road surface looks great and seems to be in a very good state of repair. Hopefully residents on Taywood Road and the surrounding streets will be able to use this road without problems for a long time to come.
