News that £2.6 million has been awarded to Wirral Council for improving roads and pavements has been welcomed by Conservative Councillors. This followed £270,000 given to Wirral Council to tackle pot holes.
Conservative Councillors have been campaigning for local roads to be included in the repairs programme for the next 12 months. In the report published on 26 March, Highways Officers have agreed and, among the roads listed for repair, are:
- Grove Road, Wallasey - requested by Councillors Lesley Rennie, Paul Hayes and Ian Lewis
- Mill Hill Road, Irby - requested by Councillors Wendy Clements, Tom Anderson and David Burgess-Joyce
- Jasmine Close, Saughall Massie - requested by Councillors Bruce Berry, Chris Blakeley and Steve Williams
Councillor Lesley Rennie, seen here at Grove Road in Wallasey, said: "This is why communities across Wirral need active councillors working all year round. Many of the roads listed for work over the next 12 months may never have seen any work, had it not been for us listening to the concerns of residents and pushing for action in our communities.
"I'm also keen that Wallasey receives a fair share of the £2.6 million and, on the list of roads in this report, it looks like we will be seeing around £345,000 spent here. Thanks to everyone who has been in touch with us about the problems in their roads."
"Not every road that we've submitted for repair has been agreed, so we'll just have to keep lobbying the Town Hall to act!"
