Large pothole on Broughton Lane in Wistaston

Villagers and councillors in Willaston have welcomed re-surfacing plans on two key roads.

Wistaston Road and Wybunbury Road, two main routes through the village, will undergo work to repair potholes and uneven surfaces.

The roads have been included in Cheshire East Council’s 2015-16 highway investment programme.

Willaston and Rope Ward Cllr Brian Silvester said: “Along with the Parish Council, I have been campaigning for Wistaston Road and Wybunbury Road to be resurfaced.

“They are two of the main routes through the village and are heavily used.

“As a consequence there are many potholes and much damage to the roads so the sooner the resurfacing is done the better.

“The roads are to be micro asphalted – a 25mm thick bitumen slurry over the existing surface to provide a new running surface.

“It is designed to reseal the existing road surface, fill in the cracks and level out any divots to produce a smoother ride.”

A number of other roads in Nantwich and surrounding villages have been included in the 2015-16 investment programme.
