Maintenance and Repairs in Luppitt
Luppitt Parish Council were awarded £980.00 from the HMCEF to repair a 30 metre section of road within the parish and £860.00 to carry out works to remove water off the road surface.
The work involved digging out the edge of the road/ditch for approximately 45 metres, laying a land drain to catch any underground water should it appear, filling with drainage stone and finishing with a concrete haunch.
The road between Coombeshead and Ringborough Cross has been a problem area for many years with regular flooding on the upward side with water running down from a neighbouring field and across the road, resulting in serious surface edge deterioration.
The plan was to construct a concrete gutter approximately 30 metres in length, raise the tilt of the road and clean out the landowners ditch so that the water would be diverted into the lower neighbours field and into the ditch, taking water away from the road. This work has been carried out successfully.
The schemes were match funded from the precept and the contractor, A R Tucker Ltd supplied the materials.
