Isle of Wight visitors to benefit from improved roads

People taking Isle of Wight holidays will soon be able to benefit from improvements to the road network on the island.

Around £1 million is to be spent improving the island's roads, after the freezing weather conditions of the winter left many thoroughfares in need of repairs.

Isle of Wight Council head of highways and transport Peter Hayward stated that the work will bring long-term benefits to the area.

"This is an economic and quick surface treatment specifically designed to seal the road surface and prevent the incidence of potholes in the future," he commented.

The project is expected to take six weeks to complete and is scheduled to take place before the main tourist season, so people taking Isle of Wight holidays are unlikely to be affected.

Visitors to the Isle of Wight for Bestival, which takes place at Robin Hill Countryside Adventure Park from September 9-12th 2010, will therefore benefit from the improved roads. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19725854-ADNFCR
