AN Oxenhope road surface marred by potholes should hopefully get the attention it needs before Christmas, according to a district councillor.

Worth Valley Ward councillor Rebecca Poulsen updated members of Oxenhope Parish Council on progress to repair Upper Marsh Lane.

She explained Bradford Council Highways workers had been out to this road and marked out the potholes in preparation for repairs.

Cllr Poulsen said blocked roadside gulleys in the village were also receiving attention, adding these had been cleared in the Marsh and Moorhouse areas, as well as in Dark Lane.

She said other gulleys not taking rain water were due to design problems, rather than blockages. These have been referred to Bradford Council Highways maintenance to see what remedial work can be done to fix the problem.
