Tewkesbury Lodge Estate winter service plan update #se23 17 October 2011

Posted by Alex Feakes in Environment, Forest Hill, Transport.

Last winter seems a long time ago now (even with cold weather forecast soon), but we haven’t forgotten the problems caused in the snow around the hills on the Estate. We asked Lewisham for an update on the revised Winter Service Plan on one of the hottest days in June.

Together with TLERA officers, we met with council staff earlier on in the year to discus the problems caused to people – particularly elderly residents – living on the hill who were trapped in their houses last year and the year before. So far, the council have agreed to pay the contractor, Conway, to try out the use of snow chains on the gritting lorries and rubber ‘slush blades’ to clear snow. We will keep pressing to make sure they’re properly prepared, and for a more comprehensive distribution of salt for council workers and residents to be able to grit pavements.
