TWENTY-ONE roads throughout North Somerset will benefit from a £200,000 surface improvement scheme.

Last month the Mercury reported how potholes and poor roads were causing problems for residents across Weston.

Now North Somerset Council has revealed a list of areas which will be given a cost-effective surface dressing – which does not include any Weston streets.

The works will improve the roads’ condition and their skid resistance as well as preventing water from seeping into their foundations.

A statement released by the authority said: “This helps delay the need to carry out more extensive and costly carriageway repairs.

“Disruption will be kept to a minimum, although some road closures will be made.

“Residents will be informed prior to the closures taking place and diversions, where applicable, will be clearly signed.”

Wolvershill Road and High Street in Banwell will be improved, as well as Bleadon Hill in Bleadon and Church Lane in Hutton.

Nye Road in Sandford, Street End in Blagdon and Kewstoke Road and Collum Lane in Kewstoke will also be given the upgrades.

Work will be carried out between August 16-22.
