Potholed road filled in

A POTHOLED access road that leads to a Henley school has been resurfaced by the town council.

A POTHOLED access road that leads to a Henley school has been resurfaced by the town council.

The narrow lane, which connects Greys Road and Greys Hill, was adopted by the authority last year following complaints about its condition.

Sacred Heart Primary School’s pupils often use it in the mornings and staff feared it posed a trip hazard.

Efforts to determine who was responsible for its upkeep proved fruitless so the town council agreed to step in. The work, which cost about £10,000, was carried out under the supervision of Oxfordshire County Council, the highways authority.

Youngsters at Sacred Heart, in Greys Hill, have been asked to suggest names for the road and a winner will be announced in September.



Mayor Julian Brookes said: “It cost a tidy sum but the work was needed as it was in a terrible state.”

He added: “The school is very happy with the work and has kindly sent us a letter of thanks.”
