Feltham West yesterday (part 1 – Allied Estate)

December 6, 2009

I visited the Rochester and Allied Estate again over the weekend.  Quite a few things to pick up.  The following was on the junction of Westbourne Road & Raleigh Road:

The following pothole was outside 44 Princes Road:

The following was next to 77 Princes Road:

The following tagging is outside 146 Vernon Road:

The following tagging on the wall and lampost is outside 138 Vernon Road:

The following post on the junction with Vernon Road looks very rusty.  It got me thinking about some others such as the one at the junction of Helen Avenue and Harlington Road West.  I will look into the policy generally and ask for the following one to be looked at:

It appears that the street in Feltham West that participted in the Micro-Asphalt pilot was Vernon Road.  There appears to have been a good job done here:

The following tagging was outside 40 Princes Road:

The following tagging is in Avenue Road but the wall is outside 39 Percival Road:

The following tagging was outside 25 Raleigh Road:

The following is outside 17 Raleigh Road:

There was some very offensive writing on the footway outside 3 Raleigh Road.  It is too offensive to include on the blog but I will be reporting this as offensive graffiti in the morning and expect that it will be removed quickly.

I am not certain if the following crack would exceed the intervention levels but I will ask Highways to look into the following outside 5 Raleigh Road:

The following is outside 68 Raleigh Road.  I will ask Highways to look into this defect (they should also look at the one opposite which is less of concern than this one):

The following sign could do with a clean – it is on the junction with Bedfont Road:

I will ask Highways to look at the following outside 64 & 66 Bedfont Road:

All of the above will be reported tomorrow morning.

Meadowbank Gardens, Cranford

October 18, 2009

I met up with some residents from the above street yesterday.  The street has recently been resurfaced using the Micro-Asphalt method.    When I drove into the street off Clevedon Gardens, it looks good.

What a majority of the street needs more than anything else is a good sweep as there are lots of loose chippings in part.

Here are some pictures.  The first is taken near numbers 112 to 116:


The following manhole cover outside 104 has been covered.  This surely must be a mistake?


I noticed that the following bollard had been marked out outside 110.  I will ask by when it will be repaired?


Here is me with a few residents looking at the carraigeway:

New carriageway surface in Shaftesbury Avenue

August 25, 2009

..but not the traditional new type of carriageway surface.   Micro Asphalt has been used.   There is a little more about this solution in section five of this report.

I went to take a quick look earlier this evening (Helen Avenue end).  This is what I saw:




And, whilst I think work is still in progress e.g. one resident informed me that he was informed that people will return to sweep the road etc I will ask about cleaning up the following:


I think that this is a decent way forward for a street that had very little chance of benefitting from planned maintenance under the current formula for allocating such resources.  Other roads in Feltham North that have a very strong case for this in the future, in my view, are Lansbury Avenue, Viola Avenue & Shakespeare Avenue.
