The scheme we funded from local neighbourhood budgets in Brasside has just been completed. The works just finished cover an area of nearly 100m, and we have now completed the whole 130m stretch we said we would.
The area is now unrecognisable to how it was. Previously there was grass, mud, gravel, potholes and in fact it was dangerous.
The Council’s highways dept refused to provide any funding towards the scheme as Labour councillors have always refused to fund what they call verge hardening works. So we used our local budgets and are really pleased at the results.
