May I raise concern over the new development along Fordham Road, Soahm by Hopkins Homes. The mud left on the road is unacceptable and can cause accidents, and it is not being cleaned by the developers. More seriously, I have been witness to two near and quite shocking accidents. The first was when a van coming from the site nearly knocked a teenage boy off his bike the second when a large truck ‘Firestones’ didn’t have enough turning room out of the site onto Fordham Road. It mounted the path on the opposite side of the road and came face to face with a woman and her two children in a pram. There are several road calming elements at the site exit point which are not helping. God knows what will happen if this is not sorted out. The highways department and planners should of known and highlighted these problems before the site was even accepted for development, or ever allowing it to proceed. Hopkins Homes should take their lead from Sindalls who have the new Shade school site. The difference between the two developers and how they conduct their developments is worlds apart.Posted in Issues, Roads and streets
