Problems on road despite new surface
12:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
PROBLEMS on a road in Mistley are continuing – despite a new road surface being laid.
New Road was resurfaced recently after months of complaints from residents.
The new surface is a “dressing” which is then bedded in by traffic.
But residents claim the loose chippings have been flying up everywhere and people have walked the tar and stones into their houses.
Highways officers visited the site on Wednesday.
A senior engineer at Essex Highways said: “We carried out an inspection of the road on August 28 and we have scheduled in work to sweep the edge of the carriageway and the pathway, which will be completed as soon as we can.”
