Good news on road resurfacing in Darwen

Lancashire Telegraph: Coun Dave Smith Coun Dave Smith

A LOCAL councillor has welcomed the news that roads in the Sunnyhurst area of Darwen are to be resurfaced.

Coun Dave Smith was responding to an announcement from Blackburn with Darwen Council that Earnsdale Avenue had been added to roads set to be fixed. Other roads in Sunnyhurst in the council’s announcement of more than 45 roads to be repaired include Bright Street, Carley Street, Everton Street, School Street and Tockholes Road.

Coun Smith said: “I am really pleased about it. It is not just a quick fix either they will do a proper job.

“Earnsdale Avenue is the worst street in Sunnyhurst for potholes at the moment.”

He added: “It is on the schedule now for 2014/15 so it should be done before the end of March next year.”

Someone should also do something about the old print one building at the bottom of Tockholes Rd which was recently set on fire & a complete eyesore for years. The owner should be made to sort the health risk from asbestos to.

Nice one Dave,

Probably deteriorated due to all the salt spread in winter due to the the fact that a lot of the councillors live up there...............
