£150,000 investment by Bexley’s Conservative Councillors to “deep clean” roads.

Following the announcements in July (https://bexleyconservatives.wordpress.com/2017/07/11/bexley-budget-investment/) Bexley’s Conservative Councillors have published the list of ‘hard to clean’ roads that will benefit from £150,000 of investment.

The roads are ones where, because cars park on either side, are hard to give a thorough clean. 

Under the programme which starts this week and runs until November, parking restrictions will be introduced so one side of the road can be given a thorough deep clean on one day, and then the next day the other side of the road will be cleaned. It will also allow carriageway repairs or gully clearances to be undertaken.

Cllr Peter Craske, the Cabinet Member who announced the investment at the July Cabinet meeting, said:

“These roads need a really thorough clean, and because we have kept a strong grip on our finances, we are now able to invest the money to do this. So many residents have contacted me welcoming this news when I announced it July, along with a range of additional investment totalling £1m. 

These extra resources will see litter bins in parks replaced with ones double the size, fencing and railing across our parks and open spaces repaired and a new literary festival to promote our amazing libraries.”

The roads to benefit from this deep cleaning investment are:

The extra investment, along with the increase in resources for a range of services in this year’s budget have been welcomed by residents across Bexley. 

Conservative Councillors have been going door to door across the whole Borough talking to residents about our plans to make the Borough cleaner and greener.

In March, Labour Councillors voted against our budget and against the additional resources for key services.
