right mess” is how
councillor John Waters described Welling after its latest year long round of
disruption, a year that is, if you discount
the work that preceded it which started in January 2012. I was a bit short
of time to go and take a look so asked a reader who lives nearby if he could
take some pictures for me. It’s probably better to have an independent and more
expert local view on the subject.
These are his comments with a few of my own…
Photos 1 and 2. The historic cannon and its new companions. The pictures say all that is necessary.
Photo 3. The wide footpaths and narrow carriageways encourage pavement parking.
Photos 4. Poorly designed parking bays prevent the street cleaning vehicle getting to the corners.
Photos 5. Another dangerous sticking out kerb with no warning bollard in Bellegrove Road.
Photo 6. Frequent fly posting.
Photo 7. Cleverly designed stone seats at Welling Corner, being level, prevent rain water from running off.
Photo 8. Islands everywhere but the latest design for Upper Wickham Lane provides no central reservation.
Photo 9. Finally a bollard appears outside Tesco. Kerbstone so badly damaged it has been replaced. See blog of 7th February 2014.
These photographs have been added to the photographic diary of the Welling Corridor Scheme.
