Hounslow Highways making progress

Hounslow Highways has repaired over 2,400 pot-holes and other highway defects since their PFI contract began.

In addition to this, Hounslow Highways has resurfaced over 34,000 sqm of roads and 11,500 sqm of pavements since January 2013.

Councillor Colin Ellar, cabinet member for environment at Hounslow Council, said: “This is a good start for Hounslow Highways and I believe they are on the right road.”

Hounslow Highways has also helped the council to go green by converting 600 of the borough’s 16,000 street lights to energy-saving, carbon-efficient LED lamps.

Also 700 tonnes of litter have been picked up across the borough, 1,206 fly-tipping incidents have been dealt with and 50 pieces of graffiti have been removed.

Rob Gillespie, Hounslow Highways service director, said: “We are very pleased to have been able to make such a significant impact on the borough since the start of the project in January. It has been a challenging but rewarding first few months.

“I would particularly like to thank residents and businesses for their understanding while the major work is taking place and encourage everyone to give us their feedback, both good and bad, so we can learn and continue to improve the service right across the board.”
