Kitt Green for Go: roadworks scheme complete
Wednesday 1st September, 2010

Council highways engineers have announced that Kitt Green Road is now open again to traffic.

The road was closed three weeks ago for repairs and resurfacing, which necessitated local diversions and disruption to bus services.

Council highways manager Mark Tilley says: “I’d like to thank residents for their patience and co-operation during the scheme, and I am pleased that we have not only finished the work during the school holiday period, but also in three weeks rather than the expected four.”

Brennan Paving were the contractors who worked alongside Wigan Council and engineers praised their efficiency as well. Some minor repairs to the pavement will be carried out shortly but with buses back in operation and the road open again, the main work is completed.

During the scheme, some 11,000 square meters of carriageway were resurfaced, plus large areas of crossings, bus stops and kerbs. 500 square metres of footways were repaired, and the concrete road itself was strengthened over 8,500 square metres.
