I will get some more tonight in B&Qs. Go careful folks. I'm with Progressive Optical Co Ltd Linda H 1 year, 3 months ago There was a water leak outside the school in Cannington Road, men were working on it but pumping a huge amount of water into the road so it will be like a skating rink later on. adepe 1 year, 3 months ago I haven't noticed any gritting around Beckton's side roads and streets leading to the main roads. I have emailed my MP a few days ago (because it was the same last year) but haven't heard from him nor seen any gritting (as mentioned at the beginning). Barry W 1 year, 3 months ago Gritters been along our road. Michelle D 1 year, 3 months ago Have seen Gritters near Prince Regent Station & going over Connaught Bridge. Michelle D 1 year, 3 months ago P.S. I hope they keep going out as I stepped outside my back door earlier & my back step is frozen solid! Rob G 1 year, 3 months ago adepe,did you expect a reply form your MP?As long as they don't slip on their own arse they are probably not very bothered.But if councils supplied more gritting bunkers ( like they do in Germany) residents could grit the sideroads and pavements themselves, and do it for those who are unable to do it I'm with Progressive Optical Co Ltd MT 1 year, 2 months ago The council do the main roads where buses travel, they don't care about side streets, but yes in other countries they provide salt so people can put it outside there own houses and this helps clear it quicker. Also they have mini gritters to do pavements, similar to the mechanical roadsweepers. I think they also have these in Westminster London. Linda H 1 year, 2 months ago Well lucky Westminster, I think side roads should have a grit box provided I know that plenty of people would go out and put it down. Bernadette B 1 year, 2 months ago Well done Redbridge, when I drove into work this morning paths by school etc where cleared, roads were good. Please remember Oaklands Park Ave too MT 1 year, 2 months ago The council do roads where buses run, then they do schools hospitals, Doctors etc, if you are unlucky to not live near them, then the roads and pavements end up sheets of ice. So they need to do more and supply bins of salt. Back in the 70's there were yellow plastic bins that had salt in them where I lived and people would go and get some and clear those side streets. Shame the councils don't do that now Bernadette B 1 year, 2 months ago Oh yes Mary I remember the yellow bins, bring them back I say. Linda H 1 year, 2 months ago A gritter truck drove past here today but it did not put any grit down, the only time it was gritted in the32yrs I have lived here is when there was a funeral. and that was a few years ago. David M 1 year, 2 months ago How sad, death by gritter. Jokes aside Redbridge have gritted our road every day. Well done. Comments are closed. Why not start a new conversation?
