Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

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.”
