Suzy Stride Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Harlow and Local county councillors Karen Clempner, Mike Danvers and Tony Durcan have written to the County Leader Cllr David Finch asking for an urgent meeting about the state of Harlow roads and the congestion it is causing. Suzy and Local councillors believe because of the cuts made in expenditure the County is failing to manage the projects it has embarked upon properly hence the lengthy delays around Harlow.
In particular at the meeting they want to draw attention to:
- The road works at the Clock Tower that have now been extended well into the summer months. The excuse given was as an unidentified gas pipe.
- The lengthy hold ups at Bush Fair just while some minor traffic signing work has been carried out
- The recent lengthy hold ups at Abercombie Way for similar reasons
- The failure to address the faulty traffic light timing problem along the bus lane on Second Avenue
They are also very concerned about the management of future round-a-bout projects that the County have penciled in. They had hoped that lessons would be learned from the lengthy road works recently at the station round-a-bout which took nearly a year to complete.
