Rossall Road must be resurfaced – that’s the message from Fylde MP Mark Menzies and County Councillor Tim Ashton.
The pair met on the Ansdell road to discuss the large number of potholes and former repairs along the road, which now has a disintegrating surface.
Mr Menzies said: “There are patches on patches on patches and it simply is not good enough. I won’t stand for it, and the residents of Rossall Road should not have to either.
“There are huge chunks of the road’s sub-surface on display and these stones will cause damage to cars and people if the road is not resurfaced as soon as possible.
“We cannot spend more money on patches – there are simply too many on this road already for them to work. We must have the road resurfaced,”
County Coun Ashton added: “I pledged to get this road resurfaced during the recent county council election and we will get it done. It desperately needs doing.
“After speaking to residents, I am not happy to hear they have reported blocked drains along the road which the County have marked as completed works – it is clear they have been blocked for years.
“After speaking to Fylde and Lancashire County Councils, they agreed to work together to tackle those drains and those works were taking place this week. Standing water on the road will exacerbate the problems we have on the road.”
Mr Menzies said: “I’ve sent County Hall pictures of the hundreds of potholes and patches to highlight the fact we are wasting money trying to repair a road which simply needs a new surface. It is not cost effective to constantly try and repair it.
“There are a number of similar roads which need resurfacing and I am glad to see a several of them between Clifton Drive and the Promenade, being resurfaced in the past week. I will be reporting further roads to the County Council.”
