Road Resurfacing List Confirmed For 2018-19

Hilldown Road 02
Hilldown Road, set for resurfacing this coming year – and not a moment too soon!

The road resurfacing schedule for 2018/19 has been confirmed.

Roads for resurfacing are listed based on information such as technical inspections, input from residents (including the FixMyStreet website) and requests by us as your local councillors.

The roads on the list this year are:

Abbotsbury Road
Bourne Vale (part)
Cheriton Avenue
Courtlands Avenue
East Way
Five Elms Road
Hawthorndene Road
Hayes Gardens
Hayes Lane (part)
Hayesford Park Drive
Hilldown Road
Holland Close
Northbourne
Oakmead Avenue
Ridgeway
South Way
Westland Drive

Other roads outside but close to the ward:

Church Road (Bromley Common & Keston)
Jackass Lane (part) (Bromley Common & Keston)
Hayes Road (part) (Bromley Town)
Westmoreland Road (part) (Shortlands)

The full report, as presented to the Environment scrutiny committee is under item 6b here.

We don’t yet know precisely when each road will be done and there is always the chance of some slippage in the schedule if, for instance, we experience a hard winter when resources have to be diverted into emergency repairs elsewhere.

Occasionally some rescheduling may also take place as a result of the need to coordinate with utility companies if they have some planned (non-emergency) works of their own, to avoid a newly resurfaced road being dug up just months after it’s been laid. Similarly, non-emergency works requested by utilities shortly after a relaying will also usually be denied.
