A Preston councillor has launched a campaign to get a busy stretch of road resurfaced.Advertisement
Black Bull Lane in Fulwood between Queen’s Park Primary School and Garstang Road has been described as “a state”.
Cadley councillor John Potter set up a petition on the Lancashire County Council website calling for it to be repaired.
He said: “When County council released the LCC Environment Directorate Capital Programme 2015/16 I was really surprised that it wasn’t on the list to be done.
“I then found out from officers that this particular stretch is beyond preventative measures and would need a full resurface. With that in mind I’ve decided to create the petition so people have the chance to make their voices heard before the 2016/17 capital programme is decided upon.
“I’ll be knocking on doors of residents throughout Summer and Autumn to raise awareness about the petition and also have a paper version with me so those not on the Internet can still sign it.”
The petition is on the county council website and states “the uneven and patchy nature of this road is not good for drivers but causes particular safety issues for cyclists in the area. Given there is a local primary school and a leisure centre on the road we believe that this road needs resurfacing urgently.”
Signatures can be added to the petition until 7 December 2015.
