Potholes to be filled thanks to extra funding

Potholes are to be filled in and roads repaired thanks to £500,000 of additional government funding.

It’s the largest sum ever received from the Department of Transport after lobbying by South Gloucestershire Council. 

Work on both Shire Way and Rodborough are to be completed, with the junction between the two being completely resurfaced. 

The roads affected are: Rodborough, Westleigh Close, and Shire Way in Yate, Sidcote Lane in Bagstone, Little Bristol Lane in Charfield, High Street, Marshfield Road and Main Street in Tormarton, Little Bristol Lane in Charfield and Tortworth Road in Tortworth.  

Cllr Colin Hunt, Cabinet Member for Planning, Transport and Strategic Environment, said: “Having a record level of funding awarded to us could have not come at a better time, with the effects of extreme weather we have endured over the past winter and summer having taken their toll."
