Gresford councillor Andrew Bailey 9right) and Wrexham MP Ian Lucas are delighted at seeing road improvements carried out in Gresford 

A LONG-running community campaign for road repairs in a village is starting to pay dividends.

The work of a determined group of residents on Winchester Way, Gresford, has led to the road being resurfaced by Wrexham Council.

Gresford East and West county councillor Andrew Bailey hopes the work currently being carried out will rid the road of its poor reputation due to its surface.

He now hopes to see further improvements carried out in Gresford.

Cllr Bailey, who was re-elected to Wrexham Council in May after losing his seat four years ago, said he had been calling for the improvements to be made for the past seven to eight years.

“I was fighting for Wrexham Council to do this before 2008 but it seemed to have fallen off the radar in recent years,” he said.

“I already knew that residents wanted this work and picked up a lot of discontent about the issue from knocking on doors during the council campaign.

“I was glad to take up the cudgels again on my re-election a few months ago.”

Cllr Bailey invited Mr Lucas to see the improvement work and to inform him of the lengthy history of the fight for repairs.

Footpaths have previously been repaired on the estate, but Cllr Bailey’s next project in the area will be pushing for side roads served by Winchester Way to also be repaired.

He added: “Road repairs have been a major source of concern in Gresford, but with repairs completed on Annfield Park and others due on Old Wrexham Road, I am pleased the council is finally taking action.”
