The work is to improve highway drainage in order to avoid rainwater ponding and freezing on Cot Lane outside Pinewood in winter. Ice has been a problem for pedestrians and vehicles alike for several years at this location. The Parish Council has obtained funding for the work and appointed B&M Plant Hire Ltd as the contractor. The revised date they intend to start work on is 17th June but external factors may again make it necessary to change the start date. The work will take a few days.
