Grass Verge Damage – Monkspath

The power of social media should not be understated.

As a result of observing damage to the grass verge on Frankholmes Drive (created through BT staff driving their van onto the grass whilst working at the nearby cable box: see post https://cllrkenhawkins.co.uk/2014/02/27/grass-verge-damage-monkspath/ ) I posted the photograph in a tweet to BT. There response was swift and I have noticed their vans are now parked on the highway.

So, well done BT in dealing with my request/concern.

    1. I do report to connect when I see them, but it continues. I would like to see an instruction to them to not park on verges or even completely on pavement. Often they can park a little away from where they are working more safely. But then of course they’d have a bit further to walk!

  1. Thanks Richard, I suspect I know what vehicles you refer to. I shall email the Head of Service for that area to remind drivers to park on the highway.

  2. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit,
    but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.

    I’ll definitely be back.
