Possibly the same BMW that drove along the footpath in London Road whilst my HTS colleagues and supervisor were clearing fallen trees due to Storm Eunice in February 2022.
I have been reporting issues to Essex County Council over the concerns around the roadworks that are causing the issues on Gildan Way but no response, issues on a daily basis where people cut you up at the lights next to the the coned off area (its been coned off for a year now since the road was opened). Also issues with the amount of cars that turn right into Mulberry Green (which is no right turn).
@Paul Schroder- for the past few months I have been contacting both Mike Garnett and Joel Charles concerning the Gilden Way/Mulberry Green junction and have recently been reliably informed by Mike Garnett that bollards are to be installed in order to stop people turning right out onto Gilden way and turning right into Mulberry Green. I have also made enquiries as to why the cones are still in place when there is no reasonable explanation for them being there. I hope this helps.
The cones are there because of poor road planning not allowing for the driveway that belongs to the house next to the cones. They will be there for another year yet and wouldn’t be surprised if they end up losing the lane completely.
Drive is not in carriage way and stops at kerb so cones should be removed before serious accident occurs
I am not surprised at all. We now have to catch the 59 to Chelmsford in Gilden Way as it no longer runs through Old Harlow Monday to Saturday due to the new road layout but surprisingly does on a Sunday! While we’re waiting for the bus we can’t believe the speed and noise of the traffic now since junction 7A came into being. Saw two cars make a right turn into Mulberry Green during the 15mins we were waiting too.
