Residents of two Herefordshire villages have thanked Balfour Beatty Living Places (BBLP) for the way they carried out essential road repairs.
Cllr Kema Guthrie commended the teams for carrying out “excellent resurfacing work” recently at St. Peter’s Close, Moreton-on-Lugg and Venns Green Lane, Marden.
BBLP worked closely with local residents at Moreton-on-Lugg to minimise disruption by communicating with those affected before work started and stationing marshals at each pedestrian crossing point.
Cllr Steve Browne commented: “Please pass on my thanks to the team for a professional job, and for their patience and manner in which the work was carried out. I speak for myself but I am sure that residents living in St Peters feel the same way! Well done!”
Kim Cooper, chairman of Moreton-on-Lugg Parish Council, said: “The resurfacing of the road was an excellent job – first class. I am also hearing very positive comments from the residents of St. Peter’s Close who said the workmen were most helpful to those that did need to go out in their cars during the working day.”
Local residents Pete and Liz Richards thanked the team: “They were always approachable, helpful, polite and professional throughout the week ensuring that the residents were not inconvenienced too severely.
A disabled resident was so impressed that she rang the team to thank them for helping her to get in and out of her property.
Meanwhile, resurfacing work carried out at nearby Venns Green Lane, Marden has been commended by Cllr. Bruce Baker: “You’ll be pleased to hear that the road has now been surfaced to a high standard and the collapsed drain has been repaired. Everyone is happy!”
Herefordshire Council is spending a record £40 million on improving the condition of rural and residential roads through a targeted programme of re-surfacing and drainage improvements.
