The central reservation on Western Way, is covered with rubbish, banners, and people living on it.

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 19:27, Mon 23 October 2023

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5129762.

The sheer volume of rubbish and detritus on the central reservation is an eyesore. Not only that, but the fact that people’s appear to be living amongst that rubbish is dangerous. There are frequent accidents along that stretch of road, such at the traffic lights and further along at the roundabout. If a vehicle was to mount the central reservation they could cause serious injuries, perhaps death, to those living amongst the rubbish, or indeed, the vehicle. As there is a category A prison opposite the site it seems unbelievable that it is not considered a security issue.

  • Even more rubbish has been added. It’s unsightly, and dangerous for the people that have been allowed to stay in the encampment they’ve made especially considering the road is 50mph with frequent accidents!

  • If anything, even more rubbish has been added. It’s not only unsightly, it’s unsafe, even dangerous for those encamped there.
