MOTORISTS have been thanked for their patience as a £4million county council road improvement scheme rolls on in the area.

Worcestershire highways team began its surface dressing programme on April 11, in Wychavon, but Malvern and Upton drivers have also seen key routes treated.

The scheme, which has been going for just over a month, has improved the B4209 at Hanley Swan, the A4104 at Defford, the A44 at Broadwas and other roads in neighbouring Evesham and Pershore.

Tenbury is scheduled for treatment in the coming weeks.

Coun John Smith OBE, cabinet member for highways, said: “We appreciate this can cause inconvenience for motorists, for which we apologise, but we do everything we can to inform people in advance.

“Surface dressing is a great cost effective way of maintaining our county’s roads.

“We know from speaking to residents and businesses that improving the condition of our highways is a priority.”

The programme is the latest in a line of investments which has seen more than £50million of improvements take place since 2011.
