Gunton Estate Roadworks - The relatively dry weather has meant that repairs to Hollingsworth Road - which includes maintenance to the original concrete road as well as the laying of new kerbstones - remains on schedule. The eastern side of Hollingsworth Road, from St Benedict's Church to Ashley Downs, was concluded a week ago. Contractors are now working on the opposite side from Bourne Road to Spashett Road. Monday saw the start of the most complex part of the work so far; the junction with Harris Avenue and Montgomery Avenue, which is also the busiest part of the estate. Not only is it the community's shopping centre, but close by are the Community Hall and the Gunton Baptist Church, as well as a bus route. Some initial problems were caused; however one unforeseen dilemma in Harris Avenue was the occasional car parking near the traffic lights which tended to hinder the traffic flow. The completion of the roadworks, which will include resurfacing the length of Hollingsworth Road from Yarmouth Road to Oulton Road, is expected to be completed by the end of October.
