Road resurfacing back on track after culvert delay

RESURFACING work on a Todmorden road is set to be completed by the end of the week.

Contractors began carrying out the work on Ewood Lane, near Todmorden High School, but they suffered an unexpected setback.

Engineers discovered a partially collapsed culvert.

This had to be addressed before resurfacing could continue.

A Calderdale Council spokesman said: “While carrying out the work they discovered a partially collapsed culvert at the same time.

“Resurfacing work is planned for Thursday and it should be finished by the end of the week.”
