Lorries causing trouble again 

 Published on: 31st January 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents have become increasingly concerned about the state of the road outside the Croxley Danes School site.

HGV’s coming to and from the construction site on Baldwins Lane have cause large potholes and leave trails of mud over the road, making the surface slippery in the cold weather.

This is the second time residents have contacted councillors with their concerns. 

In November, MyCroxleyNews reported that the vehicles were in breach of their contract by driving down Lodge Lane to enter the site. 

Steve Drury, who represents Croxley at district and county level, said the council won’t resurface the road until the school is built. 

He said: “At the planning meeting, I brought up the state of the road. I’ve spoken to county and they said they’ll fix potholes at the moment.  

“There is no point spending money to put the road back to the way there were. I had a meeting with the Herts liaison officer but with the amount of traffic on the road the repairs just get damaged again, so the county isn’t prepared to spend loads of money yet. 

“With the mud we should have Keir, who are building the school, sweeping and cleaning on a regular basis. 

MyCroxleyNews contacted Keir’s sit manager but they failed to respond before going to press.
