Work to restore paths at the Glebelands
Posted on Friday 13th October 2017
Repairs will start next week
The Parks Department at Newport City Council are to undertake improvement works on some footpaths at the Glebelands Recreation Grounds.
Many of the internal paths in the area are constructed from gravel and are used by walkers and to provide access for council maintenance vehicles.
Historically the Glebelands was an old civic amenity site and the ground is prone to sinking slightly due to the ongoing composition of the buried materials.
As a result officers have identified a number of gravel paths which need to be upgraded as their condition means access is almost impossible, especially during wet weather.
A contractor has been instructed to supply, distribute and compact stone gravel to improve these paths.
The work is due to start in the week beginning 16 October and every effort will be made to reduce any disruption to the community.
The council would ask people to be patient while this urgent work is carried out and apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused while the paths are restored.
