LIGHT could finally be at the end of the road for a woman that has been waiting six years for a property development to put the finishing touches to her street.

Roberta Beddows, 72, moved into her house in Newton Close, Chester, which is part of the Tower Wharf development by Morris Homes, six years ago.

Subsequently, she was told by workers on site that the final stretch of the road would be properly surfaced when all the houses were built.

The last houses were built more than three years ago - but the road still remains unfinished.

Mrs Beddows, who lives at the house with husband John, says as well as being unsightly, the road presents a hazard to pedestrians and could causes excessive wear and tear to cars.

She said: "The appearance of the road is just not good. And the way it is someone could step off their curb and damage their ankle.

"It's only 40 square yards of road, it wouldn't cost much for them to do it."

Mrs Beddows says she has had numerous back and forth emails with Morris Homes but, as yet, there has been so sign of the road being finished.

In one email, Mrs Beddows said: "it is now six years since we bought our house. This means I have been enquiring re finishing our road for this long. I feel my patience is drawing to a close, which is understandable taking all the visits, emails, phone calls etc. I feel I have given Morris Homes all the time in the world to sort out this problem. Once again I ask will you please look

She signed off her correspondence as "one SAD home owner!"

However, when the Standard contacted the developer they said the work was due to be done.

A Morris spokesperson: “Morris Homes are currently in the process of completing the final section of road surfacing at Tower Wharf. It is anticipated that these works will be completed by the end of October.”
