The unsatisfactory situation at Woodfield Road continues and residents say:
“We have serious concern where Woodfield Road is closed on the 90 degree bend. Every single moped rider is using the footpath and with half of the footpath closed there isn’t enough space for both moped and pedestrian to pass. So what all the riders are doing is speeding around the bend which is very dangerous as you can’t see who is coming from the corner at all. It is really dangerous and you have a lot of buggies and wheelchair users with the care home and surgery next to it. This needs urgent attention please. A sign has been put up for the moped users but it’s being ignored.”
We have raised the problem with the Council’s roads team, who say:
“This is always a difficult situation and one we have seen elsewhere. We will ask Thames Water to put extra marshals in place but this will only be during working hours. In previous locations we have found this is really only something the police can deal with but they do not have the resources to support enforcement. However, we will ask them what they can do in case they can help with some spot enforcement or occasional visits.”
Great Western Road
We have asked the Council to repair the road surface at the top end of Great Western Road.
