Question

There have been a large number of complaints about the standard of upkeep on land around the Hanger Hill Gyratory System - in particular the amount of litter which is left piling up. Since this is the responsibility of TFL, why is it not being carried out satisfactorily and what plans does TFL have to improve on its record in this regard?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Ealing Council is responsible for all Environmental Protection Act (EPA) duties within the Borough and this includes include litter picking on GLA roads. Transport for London continues to work with Council officers to seek ways of working efficiently and with minimum disruption to the public. This includes maximising opportunities to share temporary traffic management measures for joint maintenance activities which include letter picking.

Transport for London is committed to the maintenance and upkeep of Hanger Lane gyratory. Checks for debris and fly posting on the gyratory are carried out on a daily basis and posters and any loose debris are removed.

The Police have issued a dispersal order on and around the gyratory to discourage flower and paper sellers. This activity contributes considerably to litter in the area.
