Earlier this month at a Coffee Afternoon in Valence Ward, residents on Walnut Tree Road raised concerns with me about the road being used as a rat run between Green Lane and Becontree Avenue. Today I met residents on the road with the Council and the Police to try to hammer out a solution. The safety of residents is a top priority for me. Using a road as a rat run like this is very dangerous. I am pleased that following the meeting the Council have agreed to carry out a speed survey on the road and are working with the Police to resolve this issue.
