A lot of loose surface dressing on the road following the resurfacing on Friday 26/5/23. On redland grove. Clouds of dust in the air. Children with asthma at high risk due to PM over legal limits. Loose chippings projectiles from dangerously fast driving Residents not warned about loose dressing being applied. Due to heat and lack of rain loose chips need to be swept asap.

  • I was going to add this issue here too! In agreement with this post. The dust is dangerously high for asthmatics and it isn’t bike or scooter friendly - I’ve seen kids coming off their bikes/scooters on it this weekend and my own children had to stop cycling due to the danger of gravel hitting them when cars raced and skidded by then.
