Kelston View - Success

We have today received confirmation that the money that I managed to secure in the budget for this coming year will enable the whole of Kelston View to be repaired.

I have spoken with a BANES Council officer in the Highways team and he has confirmed that the Micro-asphalting from The Hollow to North Way will take place at the beginning of April.

Junction of Kelston View & Windrush Close

We also have confirmation that, following a meeting with the contractor this week, the section of Kelston View from the junction with Wedgwood Road around to Haycombe Drive has been scheduled to be repaired in June.  

The final, and worst section, between North Way and Wedgwood Road has been scheduled to be completed in July. The work on this section will take longer to complete than the other 2 areas due to the complexity of the procedure that needs to be carried out.

All the above work is subject to weather conditions and the council will be sending letters to residents closer to the work being carried out to confirm what will be happening.

Obviously whilst this work is being carried there will be disruption and road closures necessary, but we will hopefully have a better road to drive on by mid Summer.
