Residents in North East Lincolnshire were disappointed when the local authority could not carry out its planned resurfacing works on the scheduled date, as a result of parked cars on the streets.

North East Lincolnshire Council revealed cars on West Street, George Street and Hart Street prevented workers from carrying out the project.

Once the vehicles were removed, the contractor was able to go ahead with the works. However, only part of William Street and one side of Blundell Avenue could be resurfaced for the same reason.

The council stated the contractor will return until the end of the week (June 24th) to finish the jobs, as well as resurface Reynolds Street.

However, after reminding residents to remove their vehicles to allow for the project to take place, the council stated: “If, on Friday June 24th, the contractor is still unable to carry out the works, then road surfacing will not be completed for that street in this year’s programme of works.”

The council has responsibility for 386 miles of adopted roads and carries out regular safety inspections, and possible repairs, for all of the streets it looks after.

Residents who see that defects have occurred before the next inspection is due can report the problem on its website to bring the issue to the attention of the authority.

In the case it cannot permanently repair the problem immediately, it will endeavour to make a temporary fix, depending on the risk to the public.
