More roads set for resurfacing in Vassall

Over the past few years, the local Labour team have been working hard to ensure that local streets in the Vassall area get their fair share of a Lambeth programme designed to improve the borough's roads and pavements.

Already more than 2,000 potholes have been fixed since 2010 and 200 streets are set to be resurfaced this year. This large improvement programme, supported by the sale of empty council offices, has come despite the council losing half of its budget owing to cuts by the Lib Dem-Tory government; cuts supported by local Liberal Democrats.

In our area, a number of roads were resurfaced last year thanks to a campaign run by the local Labour team. This year, Welby Street and Lilford Road will see their roads resurfaced, while Loughborough Road has already had work done this year.

Thank you to all the residents who fed back to us during our roving surgeries about the issues on their roads - and rest assured we will continue to campaign for other streets to be improved in the years to come.

If you have any feedback about the issues on your street, please contact your local Labour team - Jacqui Dyer, Cllr Paul Gadsby and Annie Gallop - at pgadsby@lambeth.gov.uk
