Redbridge Resurfacing Scheme

Jas Athwal, the leader of Redbridge Council and John Howard, the Highways Cabinet Member Councillor visited one of Kenson’s sites in order to get an update on the £6.7 million Redbridge Resurfacing Scheme. This substantial investment in the infrastructure has been made possible by the hard work of both councillors and their highways team. The scheme will see in excess of 75 roads resurfaced from main strategic routes to residential roads.

Cllr Athwal said: “Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been able to progress these vital works in a safe and efficient ways to improve roads across the borough. We know how much people detest potholes, and we’ve been using the latest technology and equipment to ensure these are all filled before we encounter the cold weather in winter. I recently visited Princes Road in Barkingside, and I was very impressed by the condition of the road as a result of these works. This will benefit both motorists and cyclists, creating a much safer environment.”

Cllr Howard said: “It’s great news these works are fully underway and have already delivered significant improvements to roads across the borough.
“We’ve made £6.7million available to improve the highways, which will greatly benefit residents and visitors to the borough. We’ve taken advantage over the summer of the fact that roads have been quieter due to COVID-19, and we’ve managed to make some considerable progress without it impacting on residents.

“We look forward to seeing the programme progress and delivering further improvements to our network of roads.”

This much needed investment will help ensure the longevity of The London Borough Of Redbridge’s road networks and further reduce future maintenance costs. This investment will also keep the community including local businesses moving, whether this be by car or public transport.

Keeping The Local Community Informed

Here at Kenson Civils and Highways we are always striving to be the best at what we do and part of this is to make sure our works are keeping disruption to a minimum for everyone in the area.

On Monday June 1st Kenson Civils & Highways started its multi-million pound project for major street improvements on behalf of the London Borough of Redbridge. This project is designed to transform the Ilford High Road. Starting in June and through our 18 month programme, Kenson are excited to be working with the London Borough of Redbridge and the local community to bring Ilford town centre this beautiful regeneration.
