Getting Ready for Winter

Stockport’s Lib Dems are working hard to make sure the Council prepares now for our winter weather.

Teams from Stockport Council are working through the night to change bulbs in streetlights older than three years old, to head off any potential problems this winter.

Road repair crews are working on Stockport’s roads fixing everything from potholes to manhole covers, broken bollards to damaged flagstones.

3,000 repairs have been made to local roads, with the most popular routes targeted first to ensure disruption to travel is kept at a miminum.

The Council is also prepared for winter gritting and has stockpiles 4,500 tonnes of rock salt to make sure routes are kept clear and grit bins filled for residents to use on roads and pavements in their community.

“Residents are working with the Council by letting us know of any broken street lights or potholes so that we can prepare for winter,” said  Sue Derbyshire. “They can report these to the local Lib Dem teams and we will pass them on for attention.”
