Up to seven roads across the borough are planned for repairs and resurfacing throughout November as the council continues with its planned winter highways works programme.

A full list of roads set for repairs throughout October, November and December 2019 was released in August, as the council’s highways contractor, Marlborough, will be repairing and relaying full roads and stretches of roads that require immediate attention.
