Summer resurfacing programme enters final month

Major work to repair some of the most severely damaged roads in Plymouth is continuing throughout September.

The 12-week programme, which got under way in June, will see 37 whole roads and large sections of road across the city resurfaced. Works also include structural reconstruction of the worst affected areas.

The resurfacing and reconstruction works are being carried out alongside an improved day-to-day maintenance programme, which now sees 10 gangs carrying out permanent first-time repairs to individual potholes, including two gangs operating at night on busier roads that cannot be closed to traffic during the day.

Councillor Mark Coker, Cabinet Member for Transport said: “We are now entering the final month of our resurfacing programme, which will see another 11 of the city’s most damaged roads get a new lease of life. While we can’t resurface every road, we have tackled many problem routes and motorists should notice a big difference to the network.”

All of the works taking place during September will be carried out between 7.30am and 6pm. The programme is as follows:

Monday 1 and Tuesday 2 September
Lisson Grove
