WORK to repair the roads in Holdenhurst Village which were affected by damage from flooding last year will begin today.

A new drainage system will be installed over the space of three weeks, aimed at reducing the risk of future localised road flooding, as part of Bournemouth Council’s £1million investment in their Road Rescue scheme.

When completed, it will also provide added protection from the future effects of rising river levels from the nearby River Stour.

Cllr Michael Filer, cabinet member for Transport, Cleansing and Waste, said: “The Holdenhurst Village area was unfortunately affected during the severe weather last winter so I am delighted that we are going to be able to deliver these improvements.”

Further repair and resurfacing works on other rural roads in the town are planned ahead of this winter, said Bournemouth council.

Residents can report potholes and environmental issues by downloading the My Bournemouth app, available from bournemouth.gov.uk/mybournemouth or for more information, call Bourne-mouth Council on 01202 451451.

Very odd for the council to be repairing roads rather than creating more cycle friendly, chaos inducing layouts!
