Ealing Council set to resurface Church Path in Southfield Ward following pothole complaints by residents and Ealing LibDems

Following a campaign by Ealing Liberal Democrats, a road in Southfield Ward is to be resurfaced by Ealing Council after residents raised their concerns about potholes.

The LibDems said that over the past year they have been working with locals and reporting a number of potholes as well as other dangerous issues with pavements on many streets in the ward to Labour-run Ealing Council.

Among the roads highlighted by LibDems was Church Path which Ealing Council has recently told residents is now to be resurfaced during September 2023.

In a letter sent to residents, the council said: “We are pleased to inform you that as part of a £6.25m funding allocation, Ealing Council will be improving your road using a specialist material known as micro-surfacing. It is laid on top of the existing surface to seal and protect it from further deterioration. It can take a number of months to wear in, but the appearance will start to change as soon as traffic uses the road.

“Your street is one of nearly 30 streets within a borough wide programme and these schemes will be delivered by our term contractor Murrill Construction Ltd with micro-surfacing laid by Eurovia Specialist Treatments. The very nature of our work can be disruptive, but we will aim to minimise disruption as much as possible. A location plan showing the extent of works is shown at the end of this letter.”

Ealing Liberal Democrats leader Councillor Gary Malcolm told EALING.NEWS: “We have campaigned for many years for a range of roads including this one. Bridgman Road for example is even worst but did not get selected for improvements.”

Southfield Liberal Democrat Councillor Andrew Steed added: “Liberal Democrats receive lots of complaints from residents, as part of our approach to listen to residents, about the poor state of the streets which are maintained by Ealing Council. We campaign on streets where there are lots of potholes and glad that we have persuaded the Council to repair Church Path in Southfield. Pothole-ridden streets are bad for both cyclists and vehicle drivers. Liberal Democrats want to see a safer Southfield.”
