Road repair campaign pays off.

A LONG community campaign to fix roads in a poor state of repair in a village is starting to pay off.

Determined residents on Winchester Way, Gresford, have been pushing to get their pot holed road repaired.

Now, with the backing of local Coun Andrew Bailey, the works are to be carried out by Wrexham County Borough Council.

The surface of the road had become notorious with residents nicknaming it "the switchback."

Coun Bailey said: "I was glad to take up the cudgels again on my re-election a few months ago.

"There have been a few false dawns but I think we are finally within sight of this road being resurfaced."

Footpaths had previously been repaired on the estate.

But Coun Bailey's next project in the area will be pushing for side roads served by Winchester Way to also be repaired.

Coun Bailey added: "Road repairs have been a major source of concern in Gresford.

"But with repairs completed on Annfield Park and others due on Old Wrexham Road, I am pleased the council are finally taking action."
