Coun­cil should pay bill for flooded road

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - RAY GARLEY Email sup­plied FULL NAME AND AD­DRESS SUP­PLIED

AGAIN Ruis­lip Manor has been flooded for the sec­ond time in two years, since Hillingdon Coun­cil al­tered the junc­tion of Lin­den Av­enue, Shen­ley Av­enue and Vic­to­ria Road.

Hillingdon Coun­cil nar­rowed Lin­den Av­enue and Shen­ley Av­enue and raised the road level to the same height as the pave­ment mak­ing a higher level so when it rains heav­ily there is a large build of wa­ter un­der Ruis­lip Manor un­der­ground bridge and the drainage can­not cope with this amount of wa­ter and flood­ing hap­pens to the sur­round­ing area.

Since Hillingdon Coun­cil has caused this to hap­pen will they be pick­ing up the re­pair bill to any dam­aged to shops and busi­ness af­fected by the wa­ter dam­age. phas­ing out glyphosate en­tirely, with of­fi­cers com­mit­ting to un­der­take pi­lot schemes to trial al­ter­na­tive meth­ods of weed­killing. The WHO’s an­nounce­ment on glyphosate’s can­cer-caus­ing po­ten­tial has sparked in­ter­na­tional con­cern. Den­mark and Swe­den have also banned or re­stricted its use.

I’m also con­cerned about the health of Hillingdon Coun­cil work­ers spray­ing it, as they wore no safety breath­ing masks!
