Island Roads kicks off a programme of planned summer visits in Shanklin

Keen to remain engaged with residents, Island Roads is continuing its tour of the Island.

On Saturday, July 6th our mobile visitors centre was in Western Road, Shanklin, allowing residents and businesses the opportunity to talk to Island Roads staff about plans in their area and to meet their new Isle of Wight Councillors Jon Gilbey and Richard Priest.

Isle of Wight Councillor Jon Gilbey said: “It was great having the mobile visitor centre in Shanklin, residents were pleased to hear about future plans for the area, and welcomed the opportunity to have an input into forthcoming maintenance works planned for Western Road, Shanklin.”

Paul Herbert, Island Roads Service Director, added: “We know that keeping local people informed about works across the Island is essential. Having the mobile visitor centre and the visitor centre at our offices, St Christopher House allows us to maximise the number of people we talk to in order to develop good relationships in communities.”

The programme of visits will continue through the summer months. Island Roads were at East Cowes Town Hall on Tuesday 9 July and will be at Steyne Park, Bembridge on the 1 August from 10:30 – 12:30, followed by Wroxall Car Park on the 7 August and Sandown Esplanade on the 14 August. Members of staff will be available to provide information and answer questions throughout this time. Further visits will take place throughout August and September, click here for details of these.
