Roadworks in half-term

COUNCIL workers hope to carry out a road resurfacing programme in an area of Morpeth during the half-term period.

As Alexandra Road and Goosehill are next to a school, the county authority does not want to do the works in term-time, so it is trying to get a team in place for next week.

The scheme follows installations of piping, a combined sewer overflow and a pumping station by Northumbrian Water.
