New kerbs help people get around Wheatley
The county council has teamed up with Wheatley parish council to help people get round the village more easily.
A new dropped crossing point means that people with mobility impairments as well as anyone with a pram or pushchairs can cross Farm Close Road much more easily.
The project has been joint funded by the county and parish council and has cost around £3,000. Work started on Tuesday last week and was finished on Friday of the same week. It took longer than normal as there was a deep bed of concrete beneath the existing kerbs that needed digging out.
