April 2022 Council News

At the last Killamarsh Parish Council meeting councillors received a report from Derbyshire County Councillor Mark Foster detailing the roads in Killamarsh which are due to be resurfaced in the coming year (2022/23).

A £58 million investment in the county's roads and pavements has been put forward by Cabinet at Derbyshire County Council. The work, due to be carried out from April 2022 to March 2023, will include resurfacing roads and pavements, traffic safety schemes, draining improvements and maintenance to bridges and retaining walls. This is the second year of a £120 million three year programme spent across the county.

Much of this work will need road closures to make sure it can be done safely and where possible work will be carried out at off-peak times. Derbyshire County Council apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused to all those affected by these improvements.

Cllr Mark Foster “This is an unprecedented figure, the largest investment in the County's highways infrastructure ever. I would like to ask residents for their patience while this work is carried out ”

Residents are reminded that potholes can be reported to their local councillor or directly to the county council on derbyshire.gov.uk/doitnow.
