We realise local people are frustrated. It is extremely unfortunate that local firm Crummock, subcontracted by Taylor Wimpey, has gone out of business. Our engineers investigated the possibility of reopening the road while Taylor Wimpey found a replacement contractor. However, there remains extensive work to be carried out before this could be done. It would be neither quicker nor indeed feasible for the council to step in and take over this project. We will continue to encourage Taylor Wimpey to get the work restarted as soon as possible.
The community tab of the Taylor Wimpey site will give updates on the situation along with how to get in contact if you need further details.
