How to ruin a brand new pavement…

A utility company has apologised after leaving the new Fishergate pavements scarred.

Electricity North West is paying for the damage to the pavement outside what was the HSB bank which is due to become a new Sainsbury’s.

The new look Fishergate was unveiled in late June and has prompted a mixed reaction from Prestonians.

A spokesman for Electricity North West said: “Our engineers have been installing a new underground electricity cable to supply power to a new supermarket on Fishergate, Preston.

“After receiving approval from Lancashire County Council, we started work on August 7 and we will complete the work next week.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and assure residents that we will be working with the local authority to fully reinstate the pavement to its original state.

“If anyone would like any further information they can contact us on 0800 195 4141.”

The roadworks on Fishergate are still continuing as Lancashire County Council continues work by the train station and County Hall.

It announced last month funding has been earmarked to extend the new layout further up Fishergate and round to Preston Bus Station.
