Road Works Nearing End

The Valley Road drainage works are nearing completion, with the Coombe Lane section only to be finished.

During last week there were concerns that Valley Road (with its new drains) became awash at one point – see pics below. However, we are assured by TfB that the gullies were likely working OK and that once the Coombe Lane section is completed and all new gullies jetted, that the whole system will perform well.

The final part of the roadworks will happen late July or August when the Valley Road will be resurfaced. This will alter the road camber and prevent accumulation of surface water on the road and also stop water cascading down onto the east side pavement.

Road Works Continuing

The road works providing the extra road drainage near the village hall are now about two weeks in and progressing well. On Valley Road itself this work is largely finished with extra drains inserted on the eastern side of the road and further drains being dug up Coombe Lane.

On Coombe Lane at the junction with Coombe Gardens an extra large soakaway has been created and this is still to be linked to the road drains.
