Plane Street

After years of being bounced around on the terrible surface of Plane Street at Bastwell, it is finally being resurfaced.

I've reported a number of potholes along this busy road between Little Harwood and Blackburn. Some have been filled but Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council have finally admitted defeat as the bits joining all the repairs have eventually crumbled away.

The surface is lifting off in places and is badly cracked in others.
Work started this week on setting the pavements ready for a new road surface. This is good news.

I hope Whalley New Road (A666) will get the same treatment soon as that has deteriorated badly over the winter months. I'll post some pictures soon of some of the potholes there as I'm reporting them on
The observant wll notice from the sign that Plane Street has been designated a 'Clean Street'. Is that because of the constant battle with the rubbish dumped there?
