Work held-up

Have your say

WORK to refurbish a car park at a north Northumberland station has been held up by the adverse weather.

The new car park, which will provide extra parking spaces to stop overspill and congestion in the surrounding streets, was originally meant to open in September last year but the work is still not finished.

According to a spokeswoman for Northumberland County Council, the snow caused initial delays and then the surface has to be washed before the top layer is applied.

But the cold meant that any water used to wash the surface would freeze which has extended the delay.

Now the work is due to be completed by the end of February, but it could be earlier subject to the weather conditions.
