11/02/08 – Conservative action in Ashbury Avenue!
Work has started to provide dropped kerbs for residents in
with restricted access down the road caused by parking along the kerbsides.
This was also causing an additional problem where service vans were pulling on
to the grass verges and destroying the look of the place as wheels caused ruts
Cllr Phil Young met with the residents and the Asst Director
of Highways to look at options for solving this problem. The option preferred by residents was to
introduce dropped kerbs along the road solving both problems in one hit. The dropped kerbs will provide additional parking down the road for residents and will provide protection for grassed areas from service vehicles.
