Lorries continuously parking outside Grupo Antolin, Tachbrook Park Drive causing hazard, delay, obstruction and damage to verge

I frequently drive or walk along Tachbrook Park drive but always encounter problems outside Grupo Antolin with lorries waiting outside on road, half on the verge or completely blocking the road or path. They appear to use the public road as their personal lorry park with no regard for for road or path users. Much damage has been done to the verges (churned up into mud) and at least one streetlight knocked over. It causes chaos at rush hour and is dangerous to drivers and pedestrians. I feel the company should be made to reorganize the space within their land to accommodate the heavy volume of HGVs loading and unloading each day and night. This problem has been on going for years but appears to have worsened over the last year. Some drivers even pull their cab curtains and sleep in their lorry on what is a main road. The others leave their engines running for considerable lengths of time - hours.

  • Lorries now appear to be only parking on the road as cones placed on verges. However I did see one lorry half on verge as had crushed the cones.

  • Much better with less road parking / waiting by lorries. Verges still need reinstating.
