Resurfacing for well-used local roads.

The new council’s 2023 resurfacing programme will include Leeds Road (between the Prince of Wales and St George’s roundabouts), Coppice Avenue and Newby Crescent among others.

As we approach the warmer months North Yorkshire Council will begin its resurfacing programme across the county. Locally we will see the worn out surface on Leeds Road torn up and re-laid with the same happening to busy residential streets including Newby Crescent, Harewood Road and Coppice Avenue.

Commenting on this Andrew Jones MP said: “I have had plenty of emails asking for these roads to be fixed. I have followed those up with the highways team and I am pleased to see there will now be brand new surfaces put down.

“Anyone who has driven along the A61 at the Prince of Wales roundabout will know it is damaged beyond repair and only a full resurfacing will do. The same goes for Newby Crescent and Coppice Avenue where the potholes are impossible to avoid.

“Earlier this month the Chancellor’s Budget allocated an additional £6.5m to fix roads in North Yorkshire. The council is revising its current plans based on the extra cash now available so, if you have a road in mind that needs repairing, do drop me a line here.”

Mr Jones will submit all suggestions to North Yorkshire Council on 6 April ahead of the revised programme being drawn up by the middle of the month.
