I have heard from the County Council that the collapsed road between Waterloo Bridge and the petrol station at Halfpenny Lane will be repaired during the summer holidays.
The reason for the hold up is that to do such a large job any sooner will cause even greater inconvenience as the road will need to be shut. The longest tail backs and greatest volume of traffic are during school term time, hence the delay ’til the summer.
I have also heard that the A329 from waterloo bridge to the winterbrook roundabout will be re-surfaced soon. Apparently the surface of the road is in a very poor state and will not withstand another severe winter.
