Torbay Road resurfacing

The works are being carried out by Torbay Council’s surfacing partner Hazel & Jefferies Ltd, who will notify affected residents and businesses.

The notification will come prior to the works being undertaken in the area, pre-warning signs will also be in place.

Robert Excell, Executive Lead for Community Services said:

These annual works are important to ensure that our roads and footways stay safe for everyone that uses them.

The Council are working to minimise disruption to our roads so please ensure that you make a note of the days in which your road or area is affected and allow extra travel time if you are using any of the affected roads as there may be some delays.

Torbay Council have also asked residents, that if you’re away that weekend that you do not leave your vehicle parked on the street during this time.

Torbay Council recently secured an additional £163,000 from central government to help with Torbay Roads.
