Residents will have noticed the signs around the centre of the Town about overnight road closures. The work being carried out is thorough cleaning and inspection of the drains. This is being done in advance of the resurfacing of High Street, Fore Street and Millway which is planned for half term next February. The resurfacing will involve removing the existing surface, not just laying a new layer on top. Some of you will also have noticed a lot of markings in a variety of colours of paint. This was to indicate the depths of the various services so that these can be avoided during the resurfacing work.

The Town Council have been calling for this work to be done for quite some time. It had originally been scheduled for earlier this year but was postponed because of the disruption caused by the Station Road closure.
