Weeds over grow path in Windsor Garth

Weeds growing through footpath on Windsor Garth near Sandown Close. We’ve reported the problem but it seems to be another area that has been missed off this years treatment programme

Time of year gullies need to eb checked fro blockages. We’ve asked for those on the little Green Lane footpath to be cleared of leaves

We’ve asked for the Gale Lane/Holgate beck to be cleared of detritus and undergrowth before the winter

UFO are behind schedule in reinstating concrete drives on Stuart Road

Verge and path on Foxwood lane still showing signs of damage following broadband excavations near 12 months ago

One bonus has been the renewal of the flagstones at the Hamilton Drive West bus stop. We asked for these to be done on safety grounds last year

New litter bins have been rolled out to several streets including this one on Kingsway West

We’ve asked for the garage area off Windsor Garth to be tidied up.

 

Latest TalkTalk UFO broadband programme published

There is still some concern that verge reinstatement’s which are being reported as “complete” are actually quite unsightly. In part this may be put down to the recent very dry weather.

However, the local community should not have to put up with dust-bowl verges like those on Foxwood Lane – near Chesney’s Field – which were first dug up about 6 months ago.

UFO set to take off shortly

TalkTalk have published the latest work programme for their Ultra Fibre Optic (UFO) broadband installation project (see left)

There is some better news from the company, who have said that they will now start on final remedial works to verges and other grassed areas which were damaged when work continued during the recent poor weather.

They have also said that they will start to replace the bitmac temporary reinstatements which were an ugly feature of the works in streets such as Stuart Road. The original concrete finish will be re-established.

Any improvement will be welcomed by residents who have had to suffer  major inconvenience over the last 5 months.

We doubt if the footpaths will ever be returned to their original condition.
