Pothole Repairs in Lustleigh
Lustleigh Parish Council received funding for materials and equipment to fill non-intervention potholes under the Road Warden Scheme.
To date, two road wardens have successfully completed training to repair potholes. Materials, tools, safety clothing (PPE) and equipment were purchased.
Firstly, we concentrated on the northside of the village and in total over 30 potholes have been repaired and filled in the following areas:
Road from Cleveland St Mary to Ellimore Hill; Road from Cleveland St Mary to Ivy Cottage; Pethybridge Lane and Ellimore Hill.
This first phase has enabled the project to establish the best method of working and a well exercised process is now in place. The improvement to the road surface has been well received by the community.
The Neighbourhood Highway Officer has inspected the work to date and was impressed with the resulted and listed the additional work required, which is beyond the capability of the parish council. All involved have cooperated well throughout, making it a highway successful first phase.
The second phase will see us extend the work to the south side of the village, which is now being planned.
