End of the road in sight for Burnley pothole problems
A ROAD that is in a ‘very poor condition’ is set to be resurfaced at a cost of £60,000.
Temporary repairs were carried out to Netherwood Road, in Burnley, last year but it has already fallen back into a poor state.
Now Burnley Council, who part own the road with Lancashire County Council and nearby businesses, are to stump up £25,000 to get the ball rolling with repairs.
Winston Robinson, a senior engineer at Burnley Council, said work should start on repairs later this year.
“Netherwood Road is in very poor condition,” he said. “The Road is a definitive byway partly owned by Burnley Borough Council, Lanc-ashire County Council and adjacent businesses.
“Last year Burnley Borough Council carried out some emergency temporary repairs.
“Deterioration has occurred since and it is proposed to resurface the complete carriage-way to prevent further material damage.
“The total cost of surfacing the full length of road would be £60,000. Third party contrib-utions will be sought from the county council and several local businesses to allow the full length of resurfacing work to be undertaken.
“It is estimated that staff salaries for the design, tender and contract administration and supervision will be £2,000 with construction works estimated at £23,000. The work will be tendered summer 2013 and constructed autumn 2013.”
Netherwood Road is off Queen Victoria Road, near to Scott Park.
