Road works to begin
7:17am 19th May 2011
Residents in Fulford will soon be seeing the results of their pressure on City of York Council to get local roads and footpaths resurfaced, after it was announced two village roads are set for improvement works this month.
Both Naburn Lane and the footpath on Fordlands Road will be resurfaced over the coming weeks, with work on Naburn Lane starting on 19th May and work on the Fordlands Road footpath beginning on 23rd May.
Fulford's Liberal Democrat Councillor, Keith Aspden said the roads that would be upgraded this year had mostly been chosen following pressure from local residents.
"Thanks to the Liberal Democrat budget, passed in February, Fulford will see £283,000 spent on improving roads and footpaths over the coming year. Many of the roads that will benefit were chosen as a result of pressure from local residents through petitions organised by myself."
"Fordlands Road was one of the local roads included on the list of resurfacing projects thanks to a petition signed by local people so I am delighted to see that work will soon be getting underway."
Work on Tilmire Close and Low Moor Avenue, which were also included on the resurfacing list following petitions, began earlier this month as is set to be completed shortly.
"If residents know of a road that is in need of an upgrade I would encourage them to contact me so we can raise it with the Council."
