The Parish Council has asked DCC Highways if the road surface near School Wood Quarry can be improved. Their response is:
"Although the area is not in particularly good condition , it does not currently meet safety intervention levels. Unfortunately funding is not available to treat the whole area this financial year , but there are some areas of serviceability that could be rectified to improve the condition , and as such we have made a request that this is considered. A scheme for future works has been promoted to deal with it in its entirety . In the meantime , it will continue to be monitored through formal safety inspections , and actions taken accordingly."
