Further Resurfacing Works Begin As Part Of Bury Labour’s £10 Million Investment

Work has begun to improve a road on the border of Radcliffe and Little Lever that has plagued with potholes following the poor weather during the "Beast from the East" cold snap earlier this year.

The much-needed resurfacing of Stopes Road is due to continue for up to four weeks.

Cllr Jamie Walker, who represents Radcliffe North, said: “I have been working hard with Council leader Rishi Shori and Cllr David Evans, who represents Little Lever on Bolton Council, to ensure that works are done on this stretch of road as it had become dangerous.

We have listened to local residents and acted upon their concerns."

The improvements are part of a £2 million investment in Radcliffe's roads throughout 2018, after Bury Labour controlled Council pledged to spend an additional £10 million on the borough's highways as part of a three-year scheme. There are various other roads being resurfaced across the Borough, from Prestwich to Ramsbottom.

Labour Leader of the Council, Rishi Shori, who represents Radcliffe West, said:"This scheme is part of the overall £2 million investment in Radcliffe’s roads promised before the local elections and we are keeping our election promises by getting it done."
