Construction traffic creates town centre mud and rock hazard

Mud on the road into the Willow Brook Centre, Bradley StokeMotorists and pedestrians accessing the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke yesterday afternoon had to negotiate roads plastered with mud and littered with rocks.

The debris, thought to have been deposited by lorries leaving the McCarthy & Stone construction site adjacent to the Three Brooks pub, covered the exit road from the Tesco filling station, the access road between the filling station and the Three Brooks roundabout and the stretch of Savages Wood Road between there and Bradley Stoke Way.

An employee on duty at the entrance to the McCarthy & Stone site seemed unconcerned when asked about the issue, saying that “the roads had been swept yesterday”. No one else at the site was available to comment, he added.

A source at the Considerate Constructors Scheme said the site was not registered with them.

  1. And in the process committing an offence under the Highways Act 1980. But they do it without fear of penalty as did Churngolds with their Trench Lane landfill site which deposited huge amounts of mud on our roads.

    Neither the police, BSTC or SGC were interested in addressing the problem/applying the law then.

    I hope no accident occurs due to the slippery road surface.
