There aren’t many places in Wandsworth you don’t notice the poor state of our streets, but the Shaftesbury Park Estate has, I think, some of the worst with the road surface starting to crumble at an alarming rate.
I have reported defects when I see them, but sadly the turnaround on these has lengthened from hours to weeks and occasionally months. However, at least some of the roads are now due for resurfacing and letters should go out to residents in the affected streets today.
The roads due for resurfacing are:
- Sabine Road (due to start on 10 July with works for four days),
- Tyneham Road (due to start on 14 July with works for five days ) and
- Elsley Road (due to start on 19 July with works for four days).
We are, of course, less than a year from the council elections, so there’s usually a bit more investment suddenly available making it a great time to get those all those faults rectified.
