RESIDENTS of a Chorley street are celebrating the latest stage of Lancashire County Council’s continued investment in the county’s road network.

After calls by County Councillor for Euxton, Aidy Riggott, a 200-yard section of street has been completely resurfaced from the junction with Barnside right to the bottom of Greenside in Euxton.

Louise Wilson, who lives on the road has been impressed with the work being done rather than patched up.

She said: “It was terrible. They fixed it two or three times every year as they would fill the holes and then it would come back.

“There was one that was near the play area and if you did not know about it, then it could have done your tyre some damage.

“It is good that they have resurfaced the road completely.”

County Councillor Aidy Riggott said:“This section has been in dire need of some proper repair for some time now and this was an issue I identified for attention shortly after I was elected.

“A number of potholes were developing and getting worse despite continued attempts to repair them. Significant sections then started to crumble and give way which meant a more detailed intervention was needed.”

Now that the work has been completed County Councillor Aidy Riggott has been contacted by residents pleased with quality and scope of the work undertaken.

He added: “It is great to get this feedback from residents, they recognise the value of electing active local Councillors who will work on their priorities and ensure they are delivered for them.”
