|Birch Road being retread resurfaced|
In Newsome Ward we've had similar issues and 2 local roads, Birch Road and Templar Drive,
which are in a very poor condition have just been resurfaced using the 'retread' method. Under this technique the old surface is broken up and crushed, mixed with tar and a layer of gravel put over the top. This is significantly cheaper than conventional resurfacing and can last up to 10 years dependent on usage and conditions. We have had to use up the small amount of local ward funds to ensure Templar Drive was completed and we are keen to find funding for the adjacent Broadgate Crescent which is also in a poor state.
