Council vows to carry out ‘overdue’ repairs

A ONE-WAY street in Weston will be closed this month for ‘exploratory digging’.
George Street will be closed for three hours from 9am to allow engineers to inspect the road’s condition by drilling rig bores into the road.
Councillor Elfan Ap Rees, North Somerset Council’s deputy leader and executive member for highways, said: “We decided earlier this year that George Street is well overdue for resurfacing and should be included in the 2012 funding allocation for repairs. This work lets engineers know if any additional work is required.”
The coring work will be carried out at intervals of 50m along George Street. There will be a signed diversion, along Locking Road, Swiss Road and Baker Street, while the work is completed.
It will start at the same time as improvements are made to a pedestrian crossing in Herluin Way.
The three-week’s worth of work will be carried out between 9.30am-3.30pm and may lead to some lane closures.
The two projects will cost the council £44,000.
