Your Churchill Labour Councillors have been taking action on local issues raised by residents.
At Wellington Buildings, residents told us that it was difficult entering and exiting their estate by car or scooter/motorbike due to the heavy flow of traffic on Ebury Bridge Road – especially given the nearby traffic lights – and that they sometimes had to wait up to several minutes to be able to drive into or out of their estate.
As a result, they asked if a KEEP CLEAR sign could be painted on the road at the entrance to the estate.
Your Labour Councillors then spoke to the Council’s Highways team and ensured that this happened – see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures above!
We also heard from a resident who had slipped on a hazardous drain cover on Churchill Gardens estate, fracturing her ankle – and found out that other residents had also slipped on this when it has rained.
We asked the Council to replace it with a safe cover, and continued to chase this until action was taken and it was made safe.
We’re delighted to report that the slippery drain cover has now been removed and paved over (see pictures).
