I was asked today for confirmation as to whether or not this work was proceeding. As I hadn’t heard anything I presumed it was. However, as  a result of chasing up the Highways officer, I have received the reply below:

“Hello Cllr Anderson

In a word , no , the micro surfacing won’t be taking place this year , it was always questionable whether the street would be ready for the carriageway resurfacing .

The plan of attack on The Crescent is a full improvement scheme , whereby any required footway construction is completed prior to the carriageway resurfacing . The footway works are coordinated by Richard and I believe they are to be done this financial year .

The micro asphalt element of the scheme will take place after Richards footway work , hopefully sometime early to mid next year . I’m hoping your constituent hasn’t received our letter drop , if they have somethings gone wrong .”
