Huge skip lorries dominating 30 mphre tailgating

Sent to Hillingdon Borough Council 3 minutes later

Huge skip lorries drive at excessive speeds N and S on Harvil Road within the 30 mph speed limit. The pavement is unsafe for use by pedestrians. All residents, delivery people,tradesmen etc. risk life and limb when obliged to use it .These skip lorries exceed 50 mph and tailgate one another right on the kerbs. The Police and the Council can apparently do nothin gto prevent this. It has been possible, however, to erect a camera in order to stop vehicles entering the private road from Harvil. No cameras available to catch speeding vehicles on Harvil Road itself. Priority is sadly lacking, something is very wrong for this situation to continue. Skip owners just laugh at our residents complaints when spoken to directly . This has always been the case since the Skip Lane and recycling depots were built, now increasing in size and hours, on a daily basis. No photos, impossible without endangering myself.

  • Neither police nor council will help at all, or the skip lorry owners Thames Materials , GBN and the U9 bus to name but three. Cameras are to be installed to catch traffic turning off Harvil Road into the Private Road, i.e. Highfield Drive and The Drive, but semingly impossible to instal cameras on Harvil Road 30 mph area where they are most needed. Residents battle to escape from their properties with heavy vehicles, cars, vans and motorbikes all greatly exceeding the speed limit .
