We've just got news that the County Council are to refurbish and resurface Main Road and Castle View - from Horsley Road to beyond the 30mph signs on the Wylam Road.
Work will probably start mid-April and will involve replacing inspection covers, realigning kerbstones and resurfacing the footpaths. Areas of subsidence will be dealt with. Residents will be kept informed directly by NCC but it will inevitably involve some disruption and inconvenience until the end of the month when work is expected to be complete.
This stretch of road has needed attention for some years now so it's good that at last it's going to be dealt with.
