Bury Council is nearing the end of a programme to resurface some roads. The roads which have been completed in ‘phase 1’ (up to the end of 2020) in the Prestwich area are as follows:
Butterstile Lane (2 sections)
Upper Wilton Street
Heywood Road/Simister Lane (part of)
Woodward Road (2 sections)
The total cost of these schemes was £8.5 million. A smaller amount of money is available for a ‘phase 2’ £4.5 million, and the Council is currently undertaking an exercise to work out which streets need to be done.
We’re certainly aware of more streets that desperately need doing. Please let us know if there are streets which we need to ask to be in the programme, though probably worth saying that £4.5 million across Bury is not going to go very far….
