There is still some concern that verge reinstatement’s which are being reported as “complete” are actually quite unsightly. In part this may be put down to the recent very dry weather.
However, the local community should not have to put up with dust-bowl verges like those on Foxwood Lane – near Chesney’s Field – which were first dug up about 6 months ago.
TalkTalk have published the latest work programme for their Ultra Fibre Optic (UFO) broadband installation project (see left)
There is some better news from the company, who have said that they will now start on final remedial works to verges and other grassed areas which were damaged when work continued during the recent poor weather.
They have also said that they will start to replace the bitmac temporary reinstatements which were an ugly feature of the works in streets such as Stuart Road. The original concrete finish will be re-established.
Any improvement will be welcomed by residents who have had to suffer major inconvenience over the last 5 months.
We doubt if the footpaths will ever be returned to their original condition.
Talk Talk have told us that they will be unable to reinstate excavations on the following streets over the weekend due to adverse weather conditions.
- Eason Court
- Slesser Road
- Tedder Road
- Chaloners Road
- Don Ave
Residents living in west York are being invited to attend the Foxwood Residents Association meeting on Wednesday. The first item is a presentation on the broadband street works currently taking place in the area
