Vassall councillors launch road resurfacing campaign

Vassall's local Labour councillors have launched a new campaign to get Liberty Street's road and pavement in Vassall resurfaced by Lambeth council - and are asking residents elsewhere to let them know if their road is in urgent need of repair.

Lambeth has already resurfaced hundreds of roads across the borough and fixed more than 2,000 potholes since 2010, despite the Tory led government and Lib Dem backed coalition cutting the council's budget by 50%.  Local councillors - Jacqui Dyer, Paul Gadsby and Annie Gallop - have received feedback from residents on Liberty Street that their road needs resurfacing. The councillors visited the area on Saturday to collect signatures for a petition and are asking any resident who wants to sign the petition to send their name and address to pgadsby@lambeth.gov.uk. They also want resident's in other parts of the ward to send through any suggestions they have for other road resurfacing targets to the same address.

In a joint statement, the councillors said:

"A lot of roads in the area have already benefited from Lambeth Labour's road resurfacing programme, many because of recommendations from the councillors after feedback from local people. Liberty Street is clearly in need of work and a petition will help our case to make sure it is resurfaced, but we do encourage other residents across Vassall to let us know if they feel their street needs to be worked on."
