Dirty main road

Sent to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council 5 minutes later

The road from the new development onto The Long Shoot Nuneaton near the roundabout after Harvester pub has constant large dirty vehicles coming in and out . The Long Shoot road here is constantly muddy and dirty despite a road cleaning vehicle going along the road. The road cleaning vehicle is not getting rid of the mud and dust, it just puts more water on the road. The keep left signs are again totally obliterated due to the dust and dirt. The walk way between the keep left signs, that pedestrians have to use to cross this busy road, is caked in mud and dirt, and is slippery. There are lumps of mud and rock, on the road that bounce up and hit the sides of vehicles. The pavement that continues around the corner is permanently blocked off forcing pedestrians to use the small walk way between the keep left signs. This area is tiny and the road is narrow at this point, large vehicles powering down the road are passing very close to people stuck in the middle of The Long Shoot trying to cross. It is dangerous.

  • The road is still very dirty, despite a cleaning vehicle going up the road. The keep left sign is dirty and obscured a lot of the time. There is a small walk way in the middle of the road in between the keep left signs, that pedestrians have to use to cross the road, that has never been cleaned, it is muddy and slippery. Not really safe for pedestrians. Lumps of mud and stone are being dropped constantly on the road from the many lorries that use the road for the construction site. These bang up the side of the cars. The front of our house and windows are filthy. As are our vehicles. The whole road is a mess.
