High Street improved by benches and parking bays

Have your say

NEW benches and paving have been put in the High Street in Stamford.

Lincolnshire County Council has renovated the Williamson Cliff brickwork outside Wilkinson’s and Marks and Spencer at the east end of the street and replaced them with new yellow-coloured stones to make the disabled parking bays more visible.

This has coincided with a scheme by Stamford Town Partnership to install two new seating benches and move a light.

Area highways manager at the county council Kevin Brumfield said the Williamson Cliff brickwork which had been removed would be put into storage to use for future repairs to the High Street and Ironmonger Street.

He said: “The original Williamson Cliff pavers have been stored at our highways depot for recycling and will be used in a forthcoming scheme to replace broken block pavers on the High Street and Ironmonger Street.

“Williamson Cliff is no longer in existence and hence we will use these bricks for repairs over the coming years.” No work has been programmed in for repairs to the High Street but the council has repaired some of the slabs in Horseshoe Lane.
