Residential Streets Next to Benefit from Council Resurfacing

TEN residential and minor roads across Reading will be the next to benefit from the Council’s annual resurfacing programme, which continues next week.

The work on residential streets begins on Thursday October 5th. It follows on from Reading Borough Council’s resurfacing of 15 sections of main road across the town earlier in the summer.

A total of 10 residential and minor roads will be resurfaced throughout the course of next week, totalling 16,416m2. Weather permitting, these works will be complete on Sunday October 8th, with road markings and raising of any iron works to follow under localised traffic management.

Advance notices will be in place in the days before work commences on any road. Notification letters will also be delivered to nearby residents and businesses affected, detailing the timing and duration of the works. All roads will be closed to carry out the works and signed diversions will be in place where possible.

Works will generally start at 8am and will finish by 5pm. More than one road will be surfaced each day, which means start and finish times on each road will vary.

Cllr Tony Page, Lead Councillor for Strategic Environment, Planning and Transport at Reading Borough Council, said:

“Local residential streets and minor roads will be the next to benefit from the Council’s annual resurfacing programme, which has already seen 15 main roads resurfaced earlier this summer to benefit all road users.

“As always, I’d like to thank local residents for their patience whilst these important improvements take place. Advanced notices will be in place in the days before work begins.”

In all instances there will be temporary parking restrictions in place on each road so the works can be carried out as quickly and safely as possible.
