RESIDENTIAL roads in Gosport will be repaired thanks to a £198,000 maintenance grant.

The Partnership for Urban South Hampshire has given a cash boost for the repair of four unadopted roads.

The roads – Samson Close, Cornwell Close, Williams Close and Mantle Close – will be brought up to the standard of those looked after by Hampshire County Council.

The county council will then take over the responsibility of maintaining them.

The grant will see road surfaces replaced, better footpaths, line painting and new street lighting.

Graham Burgess, chairman of Gosport Borough Council’s community and environment board said: ‘This is going to improve the quality of life for all those living there.

‘It will give the residents a lift to know we are taking an interest in them by helping out like this.

‘It will be a cleaner, better place to live.’

It is expected to take around six to seven months to complete the repairs which will begin in July or August.
