Road Warden works in Halberton and Loxhore
Halberton Parish Council received funding and used this to purchase equipment to enable the Road Warden and a team of local volunteers to carry out highway related maintenance.
The works undertaken include pothole repairs for non-intervention defects, hedge trimming, ditch and gully clearance, grass cutting and vegetation clearance. Devon County Council have reduced their maintenance on a number of these services.
The work has led to smoother road surfaces, the reduction of localised flooding and improved safety on road junctions.
Loxhore Parish Council received an amount of £6500.00, to purchase tools, equipment and protective clothing to enable maintenance work to be undertaken, on a regular basis, in their community.
The parish council’s 26 strong volunteer workforce has carried out a number of projects using their new equipment including clearing drains and gullies, cutting back roadside hedges, clearing passing places and repairing minor potholes.
