New number for highways

BROXTOWE folk are to get a new number to call to report highways problems.

From April 2, they will join the rest of Nottinghamshire in being able to call just one number – 08449 80 80 80.

Currently Broxtowe householders contact the district council about problems with the roads in their area.

But from next month, Nottinghamshire County Council will also be taking highways services from Broxtowe, together with Ashfield and Mansfield, under its wing.

The Broxtowe team will be based at the borough council’s Kimberley depot.
