West Sussex - Burgess Hill Meeds Ward

Description

I write regarding the footway works being carried out here, and ask who is supervising these from a safety point of view, or more like not supervising.<br/>There are a number of issues that I have seen whilst passing by, since these works started, and a few below.<br/>A number of times there is no safety zone being observed, and in fact I've seen workers, although in full hi-viz, working with less than a 500mm safety zone, but also within the operating highway, such as today on the Junction Road island. <br/>One time they were marking the carriageway at the end of Silverdale Road with no TM and within live traffic.<br/>Also I've seen disc cutters being used to cut kerbing, without any PPE being worn. Please let them know diamond disc segments have been known to detach, and workers at the minimum suffering serious eye injuries<br/>All of what I've seen gives a very bad impression of how WSH treats Health & Safety and I am concerned that someone here is going to get injured, if safety is not improved

Whilst walking my dog at approximately 07.45 on Thursday 11th August, I tripped on the pavement outside number 102 Climping Road, the pavement is uneven and lumpy. My trainer caught the lump, i fell on my right hand and my face hit the tarmac. I do not have any recollection of how I got home, my face was bleeding and I was in shock.  I have abrasions to my face, a bruised tooth, a lump on my forehead and grazed knees. I have pulled my right side and my back. My daughter took me to the walk in centre at Crawley Hospital I was assessed, pain killers given, my hand was X-rayed, thankfully no broken bones but bad bruising and swelling. I am a support worker so my right hand is very much needed. I had two days off work recovering from the shock and trauma I experienced. My hand is still not good as I cannot grip. I would like compensation for the traumatic experience suffered. The pavement is terrible all around Climping Road, I am now terrified of walking around there.-104 Climping Road, Crawley, RH11 0AY

The double yellow lines have not been re-instated since the road has had a repair and new tarmac has covered old lines.  I have reported before to WSCC Highways & Transport reference number 3194506 on 12 June.  Nothing has happened.  The problem is cars are now parking where yellow lines should be opposite church wall which is an extremely narrow part of the road, making it almost impossible for larger vehicles to get through.  Certainly impossible for ambulances/fire & rescue.  The photo shows the double yellow lines have not been closed off.-5 Chanctonbury Walk, Storrington, RH20 4LT
