Headache over town roadworks
ROADWORKS near one of the main entrances into Pershore have taken too long to complete, says the town council.
The works to widen the junction of Three Springs Road with the Worcester Road is being carried out as part of the preliminary works for a housing development on Three Springs Road, with permission granted to Bloor Homes and Bellway Homes for the homes.
However, the project began way back in March and has been the source of much frustration for residents nearby who have had to put up with disruption the past six months.
Pershore Town councillor Chris Parsons said: “It is absolutely disgusting. For weeks there now there has been no work going on. The area looks unsightly. It is one of the entrances to our town.”
The reason behind why it has taken so long to complete the work is not clear, but county councillor Liz Tucker told councillors that the delay was caused following a misunderstanding between the workforce carrying out the work and the developers.
But she added: “We are told it will be finished by the end of September.”
However, Worcestershire County Council say while some of the roadworks were scheduled to finish in September, more work was expected to take place in October.
A spokesperson for Worcestershire County Council said last week: “The work taking place at the end of Three Springs Road in Pershore is being undertaken by sub-contractors Conlon for developers Bloor Homes to widen the road junction.
“We are monitoring the progress and working with Bloor Homes and their sub-contractor to get the work completed as quickly as possible.
“We anticipate that some of the work will be completed this week, while a further element to surface the footway and road junction is planned
