Success – rest of Trinity Avenue to be resurfaced

Great news!

Residents have rightly complained about the condition of the road.

It has taken a few years; but we will now see the rest of Trinity Avenue resurfaced.

Thank you to all the residents that backed the call for action.

Action on street cleaning for Edenbridge Road

Edenbridge Road has been experiencing a number of issues with street cleaning over the recent months.

These include;

  • Fly tipping of plastic bags then normally torn apart and debris spreading everywhere.
  • Rubbish and tree debris on the pavements / kerbside.
  • Flooding in areas due to block drains from above.

I can report that Street Cleansing took over the Gully Cleansing contract in September of 2020 with a schedule of areas to clean supplied by the Highways Department. They are currently working through these, but Bush Hill is not due to be cleansed just yet.

But having pressed this with residents they have however added this gully to a list to be done within before June 21st.

In addition a mechanical sweeper will visit Edenbridge Road and the surrounding areas and the Senior Chargehand for the area has been briefed.

I can also update that Edenbridge Road and the surrounding area is cleansed weekly on a Tuesday and a fly tip vehicle will visit the area most days of the week to remove all fly tipping on the road / pavements.

If there is any evidence of who dumped it, found while clearing it will be photographed and sent to Waste Enforcement for the action to be taken.


Some good news; Trinity Avenue part resurfacing

There have been calls for sometime to get this section of road resurfaced – as it has been littered with pot holes for many years.

I am pleased to report that the stretch of the road from First Avenue end of Trinity Avenue to outside number 12 will be resurfaced starting next week.

Whilst this is not the full resurfacing of the stretch that I was hoping for; it is a start. I spoke with the lead Highways Officer, who will put in a bid for the next financial year to hopefully finish the job (April 2021 – April 2022).

In addition all existing potholes were surveyed in the last week and are down for patch repairs.

Certainly whilst progress is made – I will keep pressing until the whole stretch is resolved!
