Over the past few days

April 26, 2010

Picked up the following:

1) Highways

Outside 81 Shakespeare Avenue:

Some carriageway defects on the carriageway between 1 Letchworth Avenue and the junction with Bedfont Lane.  Examples:

Outside 1 Clymping Dene:

Outside 12 Harlington Road East:

The footway dips at the side of 150 Field Road:

2) Graffiti

Outside 68 Burns Avenue:

Near 211 Staines Road, Feltham:

Bridge over Longford River by Burns Avenue and Ruskin Avenue:

3) Hounslow Homes matters

The grass near 1-4 Tennyson Close needs cutting:

I have been told that 8 Shakespeare Avenue is empty and there are items in the garden:

4) Feltham Arena

A constituent informed me that there had been a fire in the area and that the fire brigade had to break through barrier.  Whilst I have reported this to the correct people, I took a look and the barriers appeared reasonably secure:

5) Items or rubbish on footway

It was Sunday evening so may have been cleared but I noticed:

On Tennyson Close (outside 1 Shakespeare Avenue):

Opposite 105 Shaftesbury Avenue:

Opposite 1 Mill Way:

6) Fallen sign

On Harlington Road West (side of 27 Hounslow Road):

Will report later this morning.

Feltham North 27/03/10 – Part 2

March 30, 2010

Some more pictures from last Saturday:

1) Damaged post in Staines Road

By the junction with Cassiobury Avenue:

2) Feltham Arena carpark

No change here but I have requested that a tidy up of glass and dumped items take place.  It is taking time because it is not currently in the contract with Laing/Continental:

I found it strange to see a hose on (picture does not capture clearly but the hose was being used):

Apart from the rubbish, I will try to find out if the mound of earth tarmac needs to be there?

3) Longford River

Again, other than the graffiti, it was not looking bad at all.

The worst bit (and I have certainly seen much worse than this) was around the bench:

Glebelands walk about

March 14, 2010

I went for a walk this afternoon and took a large number of pictures.  Unfortunately, the settings were wrong so I went back later on as it was getting dark so hoping that these pictures are sufficient.  It is true that I do not walk this area as much as I do Feltham Park, partly because Feltham Park is where I take my children.

There is quite a lot to report and I am really glad that I took a look and kicking myself for not having done so for a while.

1) Graffiti

Unfortunately not great quality but sufficient for capturing the problem.  There is a major one by the river from the Frank Towell Court Garages all the way to New Road:

The above is clearly a big problem & will be a big job, but it is one that it needed.

2) River

My personal view is that it is not as bad as I feared, though there is room for improvement (3rd, 4th and 5th pics were the worst I saw):

3) Litter/flytipping

Along the river not as bad I as feared.  Here is the worst bit:

Where there are greater problems are (i) the alley begining at Helen Avenue, which I have already reported and placed pictures on the blog, (ii) rear of Shaftesbury Avenue & (iii) Feltham Arena carpark.

Some pictures:

(ii) rear of Shaftesbury Avenue

The other side was not too bad in terms of litter:

What is clear about the above, as it is between Helen Avenue and New Road and as it on the land between Station Estate Road and New Road is that the problem is worst within the nooks and crannies.  On open space it is not as bad.

(iii) Feltham Arena carpark

This is a mess.  Here are some pics:

4) Open Spaces

This is very positive and Continental are on top of grass cutting.

Land between Shakespeare Avenue, Burns Avenue and Shaftesbury Avenue is one that is an improvement:

By Helen Avenue:

Blenheim Park also looked fine but I do not have a picture.

5) On my way home

Tagging outside 70 Shakespeare Avenue:

Damaged footway on corner outside 152 Burns Avenue:

Tagging on streetsign:

Litterpick needed between 90 and 124 Burns Avenue:

Tagging outside 127 Shaftesbury Avenue:

A lot to report and will be done in the morning.

If anyone reading this (and this applies to any other posting also) has any digital pictures, please feel free to send them and I will consider uploading them also.

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
