‘Hopefully back to normal by weekend’

It’s been a tough week for motorists driving in and out of Montgomery this week with the long awaited resurfacing work finally going ahead.

It’s created numerous traffic headaches and at one point threatened the annual visit of the Fair to the town.

But the town’s County Councillor has this morning said that he expects the work to be finished by the long weekend thanks to the welcome arrival of a dry spell of weather.

Stating on Facebook, Cllr Stephen Hayes said: “Watching the road surface being planed off at the Pound yesterday made me realise what a busy place Montgomery normally is, with so many roads converging, a school in about the most inconvenient position imaginable, buses coming in and out, and the many businesses we are fortunate to have in the town.

“That all means of course it is a nightmare to fit in a major resurfacing programme - even if it wasn’t also Fair week, the Trails launch and a Bank Holiday coming up.

“Add in artic drivers who don't think the advance warning signs apply to them, school buses, and the fact that we all need to get in and out to carry on our daily business, and there probably isn't anyone who isn't frustrated to one degree or another.

“But the new surface is on the stretch below the Pound now, the weather looks good, and though we know our patience will be stretched today, hopefully we will be able to enjoy the busy weekend with life pretty well back to normal.”

The work had been postponed over the late winter due to the awful weather.
