Campaigning neighbours will see run-down road resurfaced
A crumbling road is to be resurfaced after years of irritation for residents.
Warwick Avenue, in Woodbridge, had not been deemed a priority for work due to its classification.
Highway chiefs finally authorised repairs last November but engineers found that the road was originally laid with reinforced slabs.
Now full resurfacing of the road – and adjacent Haugh Lane – will start on March 24.
County councillor Caroline Page, who campaigned with district councillor Diana Ball and locals to get the work done, said: It’s great news. I feel very strongly that it was lobbying that kept it in the minds of the highway authority.

“It had not been considered a ‘through road’ and was therefore not under the same funding category.
“I think the only reason it was moved from this non-existent position was by convincing the council it was not a one-way street at all. It has a parade of shops, including the only out-of-town-centre post office, which is used by many people. Also, a lot of parents use the road to drop their children off at the back entrance to Farlingaye.”
