Illegal parking blocking new underpass to disabled persons

Sent to East Hertfordshire District Council and Hertfordshire County Council less than a minute later

As part of the redevelopment of the Mill Studios site in Crane Mead (Ware) there was a planning requirement to reopen the direct route UNDER the viaduct from Crane Mead to the station. This was to be for pedestrians, cyclists, and (by inference ) disabled vehicles such as electric wheel chairs and scooters. Only the side of the route is level but with a steep kerb and bollards to prevent cars and larger vehicles using this short-cut . All was well until unknown people recently began permanently parking on the level section effectively blocking access to prams or the aforesaid wheelchairs.

Updates

  • The (untaxed) car is still blocking the PUBLIC level access under the viaduct as shown. Just a day ago I saw a woman trying to use the right of way with a pram. She was having considerable difficulty and a "disabled scooter" user would find it impossible!

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • When I recently looked I was pleased to see that ALL the cars blocking the level public right-of-way had been removed! An excellent result and now the route is again useable to mobility scooters and similar vehicles in addition to pedestrians and cyclists.

    State changed to: Fixed
