Brandwood Park Road sufacing notice

What we think …so far so good…but residents have raised a couple of issues

1) If  roads are being resurfaced then it  takes approximately 5 days for Amey to complete if there are no unforeseen problems.

Refuse collections of roads take place once in five days …. BCC and Amey need to coordinate the times of collections and ensure that rubbish is collected on designated days throughout the works programme .

2) Street lamps are being replaced and being moved about 1m to the side- a knowledgeable resident informed us that this is to ensure operational lighting whilst lights are renewed.

Question: What  happens to the old lamp posts?
Brandwood Residents know/hear a few scrap men who come round at all times of the day!

Good Points

1) Amey is keeping residents informed by posters/street signs and letters .

2)It was good to see that Water services had been called out to double check a problem before top surface went on- not like the old days when the road would be renewed and then dug up afterwards by other services!

UPDATES- please  get in touch with more updates brandwoodforum@hotmail.co.uk

OOPs Amey tarmacked over a man hole two days later and so a team had to come out and dig it out. They did a very tidy job.

Speed cushions /bumps are no longer a deterrent for speeding idiots on Kings Road because the tarmac is too high.. Amey have been informed by Cllr Mike Leddy and by Brandwood Forum!
