Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon on Taywood Road

Victory! Taywood Road is finally to be resurfaced

Hunger Hill’s Taywood Road will finally be resurfaced by Bolton Council.

The roadworks will take place after a long campaign by residents and town councillor Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon.

Bernadette said: “I am delighted that the council has finally listened to residents. We have been putting pressure on them for sometime now to get this road sorted because it’s in an absolute mess.”

In a letter to residents, Bolton Council said: “We are writing to inform you that carriageway reconstruction work on Taywood Road (15 Taywood Road – Winslow Road) is due to start week commencing 19th November. The works will take approximately three weeks to complete, weather permitting. As part of these works Hillside Close will also be resurfaced.”

Due to the nature of the works it will be necessary to close the road during the works. A fully signed diversion route will be in place. Details of the diversion plans can be viewed online at www.bolton.gov.uk/trafficorders.

Pedestrian access to properties will be maintained, however vehicle access will be restricted. During the works residents are being asked to keep Taywood Road and Hillside Close clear of vehicles during the working day to enable the works to be undertaken. The contractor undertaking the works will advise residents nearer the time.

If your waste or recycling bins are due to be emptied during road or resurfacing works please present them at the nearest accessible point if vehicle access is prohibited e.g. at the start or end of the roadworks. This will ensure that your bins can be emptied on the usual collection day.
