COUNCIL bosses have joined together to call for road improvements.

County Cllr Loraine Cox, Accrington North’s labour representative attended a meeting at County Hall in Preston to raise concerns about poor roads in the area.

At the highway commissioning team meeting, County Cllr Cox put forward several roads in the division that required ‘urgent work’.

Among the many highlighted roads for repair were, Livingstone Road and Church Lane.

She was joined at the meeting by fellow Hyndburn Labour county councillors including Bernard Dawson, who represents Accrington South, and Munsif Dad, who represents Accrington West & Oswaldtwistle Central.

Cllr Cox said the meetings provide a chance for residents views to be heard and concerns to be raised in a bid to get improvements made.

She said: “There are many roads that are in need of repair in Accrington North, these meetings allow me to put forward the locations that both myself and residents have identified.”

After campaigning from councillors last year, areas in Hyndburn including Horne Street, Meadow Street, Hood Street and Derby Street were named ‘high priority’ for road improvements.

The Lancashire Telegraph reported council’s across East Lancashire will be able to to bid for a share of £5.6million to tackle potholes.
