Council chiefs confirm well used road will be fixed after complaints
COUNCIL chiefs have assured residents that they will fix a road that is in ‘terrible’ condition.
Residents on Oxford Road contacted the Express when they were unhappy about Cheshire East Council’s response to their complaints about potholes.
They claim the area from number 92 down to All Hallows Academy is in state of disrepair.
One resident, who did not want to be named, claimed she was told by council call centre staff that there were no plans to repair the road.
She said: “The road has not been fixed for years. It is a route that is used by a lot of traffic to go to Congleton and the M6.
“It is in a terrible condition considering how major a road it is.”
Now, following a call from the Express, the council has confirmed the road will be fixed.
Paul Traynor, Cheshire East Council’s strategic commissioning manager for highways, said: “The Oxford Road area is included in the current year’s programme for level two patch repairs.
“This is a defined programme of works for medium-sized patching, to target areas that have the potential to worsen and become defects in the future.
“Sections of carriageway will be repaired in order to prevent any further deterioration.
“These proactive repairs will have a significant effect on reducing future disruption whilst improving the overall condition of the network.”
