  • Please advise of how to put in a complaint in relation to this as I also have had to have my tyre replaced after driving along this road. the placing of the new central walkway is not in the correct position. and there is still this jagged edge.

  • I live in Howard Close and we now have yet another vehicle parked in our road with two flat tyres. This is the fourth incident i know of in a few weeks. Can someone please let us know when something is going to be done to improve the new island that is clearly dangerous to drivers? It appears that nothing is being done about it and there are jagged pieces of concrete lying around as well that have broken off from the island.

  • I have submitted a claim to Warwickshire Highways for my puncture and wheel damage earlier this year.. Coming past there recently I noticed that if you look at the road markings, the new traffic island is actually out of alignment, and the line markings do not go around it as they do on other more established islands further along the road. I suspect this has something to do with the number of collisions at this spot.

  • Warwickshire County Council have today (6 months after the incident) sidestepped any responsibility saying this is the responsibility of the house developer who built the island! How can they duck responsibility for their own road. Surely they have a responsibility to ensure that any highways works carried out by a contractor are to the correct standards. It is clear they acknowledge there is a problem as since the incident the island has been surrounded in traffic cones.
