Contractors are leaving their vehicles idling constantly along the CS9 roadworks. This chap in the photo keeping nice and warm for a sleep. But it’s happening all day every day. And during the night works, the multiple lorries delivering/taking away road planings etc are also left running.
Isn’t the cycle lanes purpose in part to reduce pollution?
Our routine inspections had already picked up this issue. We have just completed the re-surfacing works on this section. Signal upgrade works are ongoing. The cycle track won’t be open till 7th April 2021. We are in the process of building the cycle track for which we need the machinery and vehicles. We will instruct the gangs to not leave the vehicles running whilst idle. Thank you for taking the time to report this to us.
