RESIDENTS in Droitwich are celebrating after finally getting their pavement properly resurfaced.
The Hanbury Road is one of the main routes into Droitwich town centre and those living in the
Horton Mill Court retirement accommodation are among those using it on a regular basis.
Some of them use mobility scooters, wheelchairs or walking frames and the uneven surface often proved tricky.
One of the residents Christine Latimer said: “Over the years it has been patched up but would fall into a state of disrepair again.”
She contacted Coun Bob Brookes who spoke to officers and got them to carry out the much-needed long-term solution.
He said: “I’m delighted it has been done for Christine and the other residents.
“Everybody is pleased and I have passed their thanks onto the officers. At a time when we have a ‘green agenda’ and are encouraging more people to walk and cycle when they can we need the roads and pathways to be maintained to a high standard.”
He added the county council had increased spending on footways from £1.8million to £5.6million.
And Coun Brookes urged anyone who had issues in his Droitwich East division to contact him on 01905 773345 or 07772 730555.
