It's not just this one, there all in a state, concrete crumbling ,bricks will be in road soon.. but this one is dangerous, you can't see cars coming round.

Er didn’t the council plant the foliage in the first place. Another example of create a problem then fix the problem and expecting a pat on the back. The lunatics really are running the asylum.

Who cares about a roundabout, what about the streets we live in , we had arson at a religious centre that got fixed, we had the same in our street and still it's not sorted out, our pavements are dangerous to walk on no access for women with kids or disabled, hedges not cut, people parking in dangerous places, on a roundabout( phoenix), you people in charge are a joke

Looks like it’s been hacked to death - looks awful I wouldn’t pay them !

All round abouts should be clear of anything so you have a clear vision not block your vision

Never mind the foliage the whole layout of the road at that roundabout needs a complete overhaul with, at the very least, traffic lights controlling the flow but in preference a system like that at Potter Street on the A414

Needs to be removed and replaced with traffic lights to keep traffic moving, also a pedestrian crossing

The foliage reduces visibility and therefore makes the roundabout more dangerous. It urgently needs this work, and I'm glad it's finally going to be done.

Gary Scott totally agree. This administration is car mad..ref: planning committee next week..Potter St, the only green space for residents in tower blocks to look out of their windows to see, they want to build a massive car park, shame on them! not giving the info in plans sent to residents, to give feedback!

Pedestrian access needs to be improved at that roundabout.

Thankyou cp and Bruce Downey, I've lived in this town all my life and watched them take from us all for years, with excuses and lies,we need people in power that are going to look after our people in our communities, 58yrs living here,never been ashamed, but I am with the people who say they care for us but only help people that have just arrived

Whoever designed the foliage to be planted on the roundabout causing blind spots needed there head testing.

Knock it down and build flats.

What they need to do is make all main roads in Harlow into dual carriageways. They need to control traffic with traffic lights instead of roundabouts

The A414 (London bound) near to the M11 is showing a lot of de-lamination and is in very poor condition and has been like this for years, why is nothing being done about this key road. Its like an off-road driving experience.

Why are my commemts being deleted

2023-12-03 10:46:40

Yes they are put up but then removed

The road around it needs to be resurfaced as it is pitted and incredibly uneven.

The roundabout foliage is the least of that roundabouts problems. The traffic to this roundabout and Queensgate centre and the roundabout to The oaks is diabolical. There are traffic jams one way all the way to Harlow train station, the other way towards tesco Edinburgh way and finally blocking the Oaks round about right up to the roundabout at Aldi. It was a nightmare daily and has got worse as more shops have gone to Queensgate . There will be traffic accidents, pedestrian issues and grid lock

Now it looks a mess, just shingle. If people cant drive around a roundabout with trees and shubs they should not be driving. For the sake of road safety, b******s. Take a look at other towns, and other Countries, laughable!🤣 Road infrastructure is the problem not the roundabout😠😠
