Tour de France: Sheffield roads get a makeover

June 22nd, 2014 — 10:20pm

Damaged roads and potholes are causing major damage to vehicles in Sheffield and very recently has cost the government a massive 1.23 million. The construction workers have taken up the entire stretch between Sheffield and the German city Cologne in an effort to fix the city roads. The Council contractor has had a tough time in the past 18 months clearing up the 13,000 odd complaints of bad roads from the local people. These 18 months have seen a number of the worst rainfalls, ice and snow in the past few years.

The highway team has been split up in groups and they are working on the Streets Ahead of the resurfacing project- this is spread across fourteen areas to get work done at a faster pace. Dangerous potholes are being attended to on an emergency basis and are being repaired within twenty four hours and the less urgent ones are taken up in twenty right days. And with less than hundred days left for the Tour de France, the city officials are confident to be ready with a smooth road by summers. Also there are plans of a highway maintenance program as informed by the Jim Pursglove, highways maintenance manager who considers safety to be of primary importance.

The Tour de France team has already done a primary round of survey and has identified the problem areas within this road stretch. Jim ensures that all these will be covered within the given timelines. There are designated inspectors who have been given the duty to identify the risk areas.

Sheffield Council cabinet member for the environment, Coun Jack Scott, has ensured that a large number of time and effort are being put into getting the situation of the pavements and roads improved and he has a firm belief that the resurfacing that is being done here is more than any other English city.
