North Way ( betrayal )

We have been studying the capital highways budget from Conservative run Bath & North East Somerset Council.

Last year when we managed to persuade them to make major road repairs to Kelston View we were assured that NorthWay would be done this year as it was in an appalling and unsafe condition.

One year on and we find that North Way has been withdrawn from the budget after apparently being in the draft budget, so a political decision seems to have been taken to remove North Way.

The issue is that buses use this road on a daily basis and the surface and underlying slabs have all broken up leaving the road not just uncomfortable for divers but down right dangerous.

We will be pushing to get North Way reconsidered and for works also to be put in future budgets for Wedgewood Road, Poolmead Road and the rear of Day Crescent.
