PEOPLE in a Herefordshire town have told of their relief at work that is being done to repair its streets.

Overnight roadworks have been in place on several streets in Kington since the beginning of October.

Work on High Street, Church Street and Bridge Street is expected to finish by the end of the month.

Pictures sent in by local photographer Andy Compton show the work that has being carried out at night and the improvement that has been achieved.


They show the work being carried out in High Street and the results on the clear streets the following morning.

He said: "I must say the streets of Kington are starting to look good.

"It can't be easy working at night so the town can function during the day."

Members of the Kington Chat Facebook page have taken to social media to agree how much better the town looks as a result.


Christine Mannings said thank you to the workers and that the town was already a nicer place to walk.

Phillip Whittall remarked that the double yellow lines were a lot brighter, although went on to say that people would probably still ignore them.

Kerri Bounds said: "The town looks so much better already. Well done to everyone involved."
