Councillor’s relief as pavement resurfacing completed on Motherwell street

Long-awaited pavement resurfacing has now been completed on a section of a Motherwell street.

North Lanarkshire Council agreed to arrange the permanent pavement repairs on Manse Road and the works were initially set to take place during the 2022-23 financial year.

However, the programme of resurfacing could not be taken forward as originally planned and it was rescheduled for 2023-24.

Scottish Conservative Councillor for Motherwell South East and Ravenscraig, Nathan Wilson said: “I first raised the need for permanent repairs at the footway on Manse Road with the council last summer and continually pursued the matter with the roads service.

“The concern had been brought to my attention that parts of the pavement were uneven and the surface was difficult to walk on particularly for elderly residents.

“I am over the moon that the resurfacing on a large section of the pavement is now complete and with the condition of the footway restored to a high standard.

“I very much hope that the recent footway resurfacing jobs at Leven Street and Manse Road is representative of the ward starting to receive a fairer share of the total number of permanent pavement repair schemes in the council area.”
