Councillor Scott Thomson has raised a formal complaint with Highways England (HE) about the length and nature of the Brookfield Road closure. Starting in January, the road is due to be shut for 12 months for bridge repairs. This will overlap with the Staverton Bridge closure - and we fully expect the bridge at Bamfurlong to be next.
Scott has battled hard on residents’ behalf, securing concessions such as HE reviewing diversion routes, and working with Stagecoach to re-route the 97/98 bus.
Councillor Scott Thomson said: “We will continue to speak with HE to make sure disruption is kept to a minimum from this essential but inconvenient work.”
