Good News on Road Repairs

The heavy snow and ice during the hard winter caused real damange to roads across Gipsy Hill ward. The council runs a rolling repairs programme but some roads were more badly damaged than others.

Matthew, Jenny & Francis have worked with residents across the ward to lobby the council for major repairs to be carried out where the road surface has seriously deteriorated. Yesterday we found out that two roads in the ward have been selected for the council’s major road repairs programme. Councillors were invited to nominate roads in a particularly bad state of repair after the winter for inclusion in the programme.

Due to the deep cut in Lambeth’s funding from the Tory government, across the twenty-three wards in Lambeth only seventeen roads have been able to be chosen for major repairs. We are really pleased that two of those roads, Rommany road & Woodland road, are in Gipsy Hill.

Work will start on Woodland road, in Upper Norwood, in June and Rommany road, in West Norwood, in October – residents on these roads will be contacted directly by the council about how these works will affect them. Matthew, Jenny & Francis will continue to lobby the council about the state of other roads with the council so do let us know if you’re concerned about the roads where you live, we’ll always do our best to help.
