Covid frustrates road resurfacing

01 June 2020
 

Reading Borough Council has had to cut back a residential road surfacing programme because so many more cars are parked on streets during the day because of Covid-19 movement restrictions. “The increased number of parked cars in our residential roads not moving during the day and night makes it impractical for the contractor to resurface roads without requiring the public to move large numbers of cars during the lockdown / restrictions period,” Andy Edwards, Reading’s assistant director of environmental and commercial services, told councillors. The £9m three-year capital maintenance programme is to be reprofiled with £1.5m spent in 2020/21 and £7.5m over the following two years.
