I recently wrote to UK Power Network about the state of the substation in Queenswood Avenue, near the footpath to the Wash Road Industrial Estate in Talon Road, asking them to tidy it up, remove the graffiti and replace the broken fence.
It is disappointing they have allowed it to get in to such a state but credit where it’s due: Within a few days of writing to them, I had a response apologising for the lack of attention to the site and a promise to act.
I’m informed that the broken fence will be replaced as soon as the tender for the work has been carried out and that the graffiti will be removed and the grass cut back.
I will keep my eye on the progress and I hope they will be true to their word. It was certainly a fast response and so it does bode well.
