LAST week (2nd June) Conservatives Councillors for SS17 visited the Manorway to inspect the overnight works taking place. There is an investment of over £1 million to reduce the noise pollution for the nearby community by resurfacing the road. Councillors Alex Anderson, Gary Collins, James Halden and Shane Hebb were in attendance.
Cllr Mark Coxshall, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration said: “This is a great example of the council working with the port to get the promised infrastructure in place to reduce the impact of traffic movements on residents.”
Cllr Alex Anderson for Stanford East & Corringham Town said: “It was fantastic to attend site on the Manorway on Wednesday night to witness first hand the work and investment going into this road. When it comes to the Manorway, we recognise that issues such as noise pollution have been a real blight on residents. It’s one of the reasons this investment is so vital, and I really look forward to seeing this work’s completion for our community”.
Cllr James Halden for Homesteads said: “This massive investment of over £1m is what our community needs and deserves. The Manorway works will produce a better road with much less noise. I have heard the crashing and banging myself, so seeing vast sections of road being torn up and methodically replaced to improve people’s peace and quiet is a great thing”.
SS17 Conservatives are working closely with the Council to do everything possible to minimise the impact of these evening works. Works are taking place over 16 midweek evenings, with an expected completion date of the 23rd of June. Residents can reach out to their local councillors if they want to raise any concerns.
