  • The owner of the vehicle in the photo is building at the house opposite 52 Cleeve Down and has been for quite sometime. After the resident at no.52 was asked by the builder to move their car because of a cement lorry was arriving with its delivery for the house he’s working on. It was noticed how big the size of the lorry was. It struggled to turn at the right angle to reverse to unshed it’s load and mounted the kerb. It would appear that the cement lorry was to heavy and big for the design of the road to allow it to turn and reverse to the house in question. Just to mention, the damage is quite severe. The cement blocks are becoming looser & working there way out into the road. That right hand turn is “popular” access to residents homes in the cup-de-sac end. It’s also widely used by runners, children in pushchairs, ramblers and the elderly. It’s a injury claim waiting to happen.

  • See previous reports. This is getting worse. The longer it’s left in bad weather and more distribution lorries delivering to the house that don’t fit the road opposite no 52, it is concerning.
