Kington Town Council has provided an update on the timeline for ongoing improvement works to the town's streets.

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

The work was intended to be finished before the end of October, however due to a clash of planned works, this will have to be delayed.

Mayor David Redmayne spoke on the Kington Chat Facebook page regarding the work's completion.


He said that Balfour Beatty was unable to obtain the extension needed to work from the Market Hall along Church Street due to be carried out this week as Western Distribution already had a licence to work at the same time.

He added that Balfour Beatty now intends to complete the work on the week commencing November 7 and letters will be sent out to all people affected.

Mr Redmayne said: "The pavement work has been completed and looks very good - as does the finished resurfacing work.


"Again, thanks to all those who have had disruption during these works.

"There will be further Market Towns Maintenance Fund budget available early next year - as yet no firm decisions have been made on how these funds may be used.

"Kington Town Council will continue to work closely with Kington Chamber of Trade, Balfour Beatty and Herefordshire Council on the future of this scheme."
