Road resurfacing, Amey & Streets Ahead

Recommended Posts

I thought the plan was that all the roads would be up to the required standard after the first 5 years, and the estimate was that about 70 per cent would need resurfacing to achieve this.

 

They have though not done the 70 percent in the first five years as far as I can see.

How many times over what is nearly a decade have Sheffielders heard that the agreement between SCC & Amey to resurface the city's roads would be done to a 5 year timescale? 

 

Well apparently we all heard wrong!  This from The Star:

https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/politics/common-misperception-around-timescales-of-sheffield-council-resfuracing-works-as-part-of-ps22-billion-contract-52892

 

And yet go on Amey's website & the timescale appears to be nailed on:

 

https://www.amey.co.ukhttps//www.amey.co.uk/about-us/amey-in-your-area/north-east/sheffield-streets-ahead/

Spookily, the link to Amey'as website where they apparently say it will be done in five years doesn't work. Yet the link saying it was never going to be done in five years does. I definitely remember it being five years from 2012 for all roads to be up to scratch. When facts change like this it's positively Orwellian.

If you actually look at the link in the post you quoted you'll see why it doesn't work - the "amey" bit of the link is repeated.

 

Proper link;

No mention of all roads being resurfaced in 2012-2017.

At least repairs have to be done at Amy’s cost

Doesn't matter who did the work, Amey are contractually responsible for it so they have to pay for it to be fixed if they can't get the sub contractor to do the remedials.
