On my way to (and back from) The Centre

April 6, 2010

Whilst not yet quite complete, things are looking much better in the alley between Helen Avenue and New Road:

I have previously reported the following utility box in Hounslow Road near the junction with Fern Grove (opposite St Giles Hotel).  Here is what I was told:

“I refer to your blog of 24 January, 2010 regarding above subject.   Virgin Media has been notified to repair their broken cabinet within 7 seven days under Section 81 of the New Roads and Street Works Act, to maintain their apparatus in the street to the reasonable satisfaction of the street authority.”

Either it was repaired and then damaged again or it was not repaired at all?  I do not know but it needs attention:

The following needs a visit from TfL – it is outside 37 Harlington Road West:

I am about to report the above.

Issues around Baber Drive & Hounslow Road

February 16, 2010

I have received an anonymous letter about three matters:

  1. Dog mess on pavements and grass verge on Hounslow Road between the its junctions of with Baber Drive and Staines Road;
  2. Vehicles such as refuse and fire remain unable to go down Baber Drive.  This is despite the introduction of yellow lines on the junction with Hounslow Road.
  3. Reporting two Houses that are in Multiple Occupation.

With regards to the first and third, I have reported to the relevant department.  With regards to the second, I have asked for this to be looked into.

In addition to 1, I have also written to express concern about dog mess on pavements in The Drive, Beeston Way & Cygnet Avenue.  A couple of residents also raised with me when they saw me out and about.

Things picked up in Feltham North earlier today

February 13, 2010

1) Highways

I do not think I have ever seen so many defects marked up for repair on footways in my ward.  Either there has been planned visits or someone has pre-empting my post today.

Here are some defects not yet picked up.  The first is outside 88 Harlington Road West and I trust it is a temporary repair.  I will find out – I am confident that it is a TfL matter:

The following is outside 99 Harlington Road West:

Outside 117 Carlton Avenue, I noticed that the lines around the defect have faded.  Will check it will be repaired soon:

Opposite 144 Hounslow Road:

Here is a selection of ones already picked up.  First between 4 &6 Baber Drive:

I am pleased that the problem of bags out early at the side of 119 Harlington Road West has pretty much gone away (though one small bag there today), I notice the following at the rear:

I am concerned to see how flowing it was on a Saturday morning.

And someone has dumped manure in The Vale (near the junction with Hounslow Road):

5) Entrance to former Eldridge House

I noted the following earlier today:

I reported the above in December (reference 1069674) – will ask why the problem remains?

6) Hedge preventing use of footway

The following opposite 85 Beeston Way was mentioned to me in December.  No real change today.

7) Latest with conservatory at Lavender Court:

8 ) Street cleaning request in Hounslow Road

The following outside 80 Hounslow Road needs a good sweep and clean:

And the following is a regular problem outside 41 Hounslow Road but again a clean and sweep would be appreciated:

Where applicable, I will report the above on Monday morning.

Quick visit to Cygnet Avenue yesterday afternoon

January 24, 2010

I have received a complaint about bollards placed around the green between numbers 17 & 43.  In addition, a number came to the surgery yesterday morning that was covered by Gill Hutchison.  I had half an hour to pop around so did so.

Here is what I saw:

On the positive side:

  1. The bollards are less intrusive than other bollards I have seen;
  2. They will serve the intended purpose in preventing people from driving over the green.

On the negative side:

  1. I would have preferred that Hounslow Homes had consulted tenants and residents;
  2. There is certainly a parking problem at this location, some of the reasons for this are typical and some are specific to this location;
  3. I am concerned about the lack of access for emergency vehicles.  I was informed that refuse was not collected for four weeks because of a lack of access – unfortunately no-one mentioned this to me until yesterday.

Typically Hounslow Homes does not support removing grassed areas for more parking and I understand the reasons why – I have never been critical.  I also understand the difficulty that Hounslow Homes are in for they (and we as local Councillors) do receive complaints about people driving over the grassed areas.  It is a very difficult situation.

However, there are some issues here and I hope that there is a solution that protects the green but also enables access without removing much needed parking capacity.

On my way there, I picked up the following:

Potholes outside 122 Hounslow Road, Feltham

Potholes in Carlton Avenue

Outside number 1:

There were more outside numbers 19, 21, 115 & 117.

Pothole between 23 & 45 Cygnet Avenue:

Yesterday morning in Hanworth

January 24, 2010

Spent yesterday in Hanworth and took note of some things that need to be reported.

1) Footway defect on junction of Winslow Way & Ridge Way

2) Dumped bed opposite 45 Winslow Way

3) Tagging on bus stop opposite 3 Saxon Avenue

4) Tagging next to 2 Winslow Way

5) Potholes outside 11 and 25 Winslow Way

6) Tagging in alley to Cottington Road (off Hounslow Road)

7) Lots of litter by Longford River (in Hounslow Road – between numbers 128 & 136)

I will ask that the agency responsible for this land (it is almost certainly not the Council) pay a visit and advise what schedule they have for litter picking here?

8 ) Lots of graffiti in underpass by A316

Lots of work is needed to remove tagging at the above location between Hounslow Road & Bear Road.  Here are some examples:

9) Tagging near The Hollands

The picture does not capture the amount of graffiti very well but it is clear in person and it on the brown wall next to the fence.

10) Boarded up property at 1 Saxon Avenue

11) Tagging in Sunningdale Avenue (near junction with Saxon Avenue)

12) Tagging in Cross Road, Hanworth

The first is next to number 26:

The next two are on the junction with Crispen Road:

The next is near the junction with Swan Road:

The next is by 40 Cross Road (but the picture has not come out too well).

13) Next to 94 Crispen Road

14) Next to 144 Sunningdale Avenue

Best Wishes Ram, Jim and Mash

January 22, 2010

I did not know that the Londis Store on Hounslow Road was changing hands.  The three brothers are very nice men and popular with local residents.  I wish them all the best and hope to see them this evening when I pop in.

Reporting continues in 2010

January 4, 2010

Here are some pictures of tagging.  The first is at the side of the Tote Bookmakers in Staines Road, Bedfont (next to junction with New Road):

And, the next two are taken in the alleyway entrance off New Road (this time the one in Feltham and not Bedfont) leading to Feltham Park, Helen Avenue etc:

There are other bits of tagging that I have seen (but did not get to take pictures):

  1. When turning left off Staines Road, Feltham into Faggs Road, there is quite a lot of tagging on the panels on the left;
  2. There is tagging on the plastic/glass at the bus stop outside the Feltham Assembly Hall in Hounslow Road – this tagging is particularly offensive;

I will report each of the above today.

The rest from 12/12/09

December 14, 2009

It appears that rubbish has possibly not been collected outside 1 Baber Drive:

The following bit of footway near 41b Hounslow Road needs a steam clean.  Because of the large tree, it is impossible for this footway to be kept free from bird mess but I will ask for (i) the area to be cleaned and (ii) for the schedule that it is cleaned because of the regular problem.

The following is not far from the entrance to 73-89 Field Road:

I am not certain if the following on the slip road outside 122 Hounslow Road would fall within the intervention levels but I will ask Highways to look at this:

The following is outside 237 to 247 Staines Road:

The following is in The Causeway (at the end of Green Man Lane):

The following works were in Beeston Way (at the end of Baber Drive):

What I found strange was the information on the sign:

I will ask what 07-09 divided 10 – 2008 means?

The following litter was near the shops at Baber Bridge Parade:

The sign at the end of Green Mane Lane needs a good clean (or replacement) and I wonder whether it is pointed in the incorrect direction?

The following is the land next to 24 Green Man Lane – there was recently a very large mound of earth that appears to have been spread around – I will ask?:

The following bollard is opposite 2 Green Man Lane and I am not certain if it serves any purpose in its current position:

The following footway opposite 85 Beeston Way cannot be used:

The following lampost opposite Speedy Hire in Staines Road appears to have been knocked and damaged a little:

Entrance to former Eldridge House

December 14, 2009

The above could do with a visit – general sweep a litter pick.  Here are some pics:
