Spring Roadworks to Tackle Boroughbridge Road Flooding
3:19pm 23rd October 2014
Drivers are set for roadworks on York's Boroughbridge Road in the Spring as a project to tackle flooding in the area takes place.
Many people living in the Boroughbridge Road and Carr Lane areas have had issues with flooding in the past.
Recently, Yorkshire Water has cleared fat and rubbish out of the sewer on Boroughbridge Road, while the city council has raised the pavement on Carr Lane, changed the road gully and taken tree roots out of the drains on Boroughbridge Road.
Now, £50,000 will be spent for a long term fix to stop drains and sewers overflowing after heavy rain.
A study will be carried out on the drains and sewers before the road is dug up for work, which could include widening sewers or could mean water storage tanks are installed.
The city council is emphasising it's short term pain for long term gain and adds disruption will be kept to a minimum.
