Cinammon Lane road works to start next month
5:00pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
A DATE has been confirmed for a problem road to be resurfaced.
Warrington Borough Council has announced work to repair Cinnamon Lane will start on October 7.
It is expected to take four weeks for the entire road to be resurfaced.
A spokesman said: “It is our intention to carry out structural maintenance works on Cinnamon Lane.
“Works are currently out to tender and programmed to commence on October 7.
“The information plan will be sent out to residents and businesses, the emergency services, and bus companies in due course, as well as appearing on the Warrington Borough Council website.
“Notice boards will appear on site nearer to the start date to inform motorists of the works.”
Clr Ian Johnson, chairman of Poulton with Fearnhead Parish Council, said: “It is something that the parish council has supported for a long time.
“Everyone is very pleased that the work is going to start.”
Road closures will be in place while Cinnamon Lane is resurfaced.
Junctions with Gayhurst Avenue, Appletree Grove and Parkfields Lane will be affected.
Drivers are advised to use Enfield Park Road, Blackbrook Avenue and Insall Road instead.
The move comes after residents hit out at the council decision to omit Cinnamon Lane from a list of roads to be repaired this year.
Complaints had been made over the road for three years, with Clr Geoff Settle (Poulton North LAB) campaigning for it to be resurfaced.
However, as revealed in the Warrington Guardian, it was ‘not identified as a priority’ by Town Hall bosses in a report in June.
Road users criticised the decision, calling potholes and cracks in Cinnamon Lane some of the worst in Warrington.
The council then announced in July the road would be resurfaced, four days after the report was published to say it was not a priority.
It said that Cinnamon Lane had ‘deteriorated’ since the report was completed.
