Bolton Council has refused to resurface badly neglected Snydale Close but will instead spend money on making it a 20mph zone.
The Labour-run council is splashing the cash on a 20mph sign for the new speed restriction on the cul-de-sac – but says the road can’t be resurfaced.
It comes despite numerous complaints from residents and town councillor Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon (pictured).
Bernadette said: “This just shows how little the council cares about our residents. The road is in an absolute state.”
The council told us: “At present Snydale Close isn’t on the current resurfacing programme. With the limited budgets we are working to it is not possible to predict when it will be due to be resurfaced but in the meantime it is regularly inspected and any actionable defects will be repaired. I’m sorry I can’t be more positive at the moment.”
