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):

3) Graffiti

Opposite 29 Shakespeare Avenue:

4) Recent carriageway repair

On the junction of Burns Avenue and Ruskin Avenue:

Will report tomorrow.

Feltham Arena car park

April 13, 2010

Some work has been done over the past couple of days to the car park, which had been a mess.  It is now a lot better than before with various flytipping and mattresses removed.

Here are some pics:

I was out and about in Shakespeare Avenue yesterday and was keen to apologise to residents I spoke with for the lack of progress on the site.  In the short term, I am pleased that the work above has taken place and thanked the man involved.  Not only has a lot of rubbish been taken away but the large mound of tarmac has been lowered.  Soem fencing has also gone up.  In the medium-long term getting this right must be a top priority for whoever is elected in Feltham North.

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.

Out again this evening

February 17, 2010

Very cold again.  I was out and about in Tachbrook Road, Fruen Road, Shakespeare Avenue, Ruskin Avenue, Cassiobury Avenue, Letchworth Avenue, part of Bedfont lane & part of Staines Road.  No pictures but the streets, especially Tachbrook Road and Fruen Road were very clean.  Saw no litter or tagging etc.
