A productive little mooch around the neighbourhood north of Great West Road between Wood Lane and Syon Lane.
Attending: Satbir and Ali from Hounslow Highways; Joyce from Hounslow Council Contracts Team; Gerry S from Syon Park Gardens; Ian T from Wyke Close; Basil M from Syon Lane; OSG Ward Councillors Tony Louki and Sheila OReilly
Following the Wardabout, Hounslow Highways have undertaken to:
- Provide a list of actions raised within 3 working days
- Send an updated list of full actions and outcomes of any investigations within 28 days.
These are what I noted, not all are the responsibility of Hounslow Highways, some are Transport for London which is accountable for Great West Road; matters of flytipping on private land are the locus of Hounslow Council’s Enforcement Service:
Require litter bin near entrance to 120 Wood Lane – heavy footfall to schools and the Osterley Sports Centre and Athletics Track;
Seek solution to westbound vehicle access to Syon Park Gardens from Great West Road;
Deep clean by refuges at junction of Wood Lane and Great West Road;
Ask TfL to fix the refuge barriers damaged during recent road traffic incident;
Complete lighting works on Wyke Estate footpath from Wood Lane to opposite 141 Syon Lane;
Advise on responsibility for maintaining play area along this footpath;
Advise on sweeping and litter pick frequency for this footpath;
Unblock gulley outside 143 Syon Lane;
Unblock gulley at 141 Syon Lane/Macfarlane Lane;
Deep clean of laybys from 141 to 211 Syon Lane;

Contact TfL to encourage maintenance and protection of grass verges on Great West Road – another of Mayor Boris Johnson’s failures.
Ali and Joyce also made notes so this list is not exhaustive.
A range of other issues e mailed to councillors by residents unable to make the event will be forwarded to the appropriates for follow up.
