Island Roads are about to host the last of the current planned Parish and Town Council Roadshows in Cowes on Wednesday.
Working in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council, these events are an opportunity for people to hear more about how the highway service will be changing in April and what it will mean to them.
Parish and Town Council Roadshows have already taken place at Newport, Sandown, Ryde, Freshwater and Ventnor.
The Cowes Island Roads – presentation will be held on Wednesday 30th January at 6pm in at Cowes High School. Roadshow staff will be available to answer questions from 5pm.
Paul Herbert, Island Roads Service Director, said, “The Roadshows provide us with an opportunity to introduce Island Roads and what the new highway service will look like to Councillors and local people. Each Roadshow is tailored to each of the Districts so that we can provide relevant, local information for local people. We are keen to work in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council to ensure that people are informed about the changes coming in their area.”
Island Roads is a local business, employing local people to provide a highways service which reflects local priorities. Island Roads will deliver the full scope of the Highways PFI and, from April next year, will begin upgrading, enhancing and maintaining the Isle of Wight’s 803km of rural and urban roads, 767km of footways, 12,068 street lights, 209 bridges and structures, cycle ways, public car parks, signage, CCTV and street furniture.
Island Roads aims to provide a highways service which not only enhances, but also enriches, the whole Island to ensure the Isle of Wight continues to be an inspiring place to live, work and visit.
