|Engineers Way, outside Brent Civic Centre, today|
Paul Lorber has written to Brent CEO Carolyn Downs calling on her to halt efforts to repair the expensive brick paving outside the Civic Centre and to tarmac the road, Engineer's Way, instead:
You will recall that I expressed my concern about the crumbling road outside
the Civic Centre recently.
You advised of repairs which were carried out but clearly did not work.
The road is a mess again and in my view both a danger and risking causing
damage to private vehicles driving over it. It is also a danger to
pedestrians who cross the road to get to the shops or the square opposite
the Civic Centre.
The materials used are clearly unsuitable for a road in the middle of a
permanent building site around Wembley Stadium.
I think the time has come to accept that a big mistake was made using the
individual stones for this road, that money was wasted but that time has now
come for dig up the stones and replace them with level tarmac road which is
not subject to constant crumbling as a result of the volume of large lorries
Please confirm that action will at long last be taken to provide a safe road
in front if the Civic Centre and prevent Brent Council becoming a laughing
stock for allowing for this disaster to continue.
