Was our case for CCTV not well put?

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - ROY JAMIESON Corn­wall Road Ruislip

AP­PAR­ENTLY there are to be CCTV cam­eras in­stalled in Sid­mouth Drive, Ruislip to mon­i­tor HGVs “fol­low­ing a well agreed case by a lo­cal res­i­dent” ac­cord­ing to Cllr Mills.

When they were sug­gested by Corn­wall Road res­i­dents as a traf­fic calm­ing mea­sure, we were ad­vised by Cllr Bur­rows that they could only be in­stalled af­ter there had been “three deaths on the road”.

Sub­se­quently they in­stalled traf­fic is­lands on part of the road, which in­stead of calm­ing traf­fic are hav­ing the op­po­site ef­fect as some driv­ers and mo­tor cy­clists are now treat­ing the road as a rac­ing, ob­sta­cle course which could eas­ily re­sult in ac­ci­dents, and is also making park­ing very dif­fi­cult.

Sev­eral res­i­dents have emailed coun­cil­lors Pud­di­foot and Bur­rows, but we have been com­pletely IG­NORED.

Is there any­one out there that cares about the res­i­dents that the Coun­cil sup­pos­edly “PUT FIRST”? Ap­par­ently NOT!
