  • in reply to: Does Wrexham Council have, or have access to, a vacum truck #157258

    As already stated the road side drains were once routinely cleaned/flushed out with one of those sucker pipe things on a big truck.

    Apparently at one time there were a few of them designated to the Wrexham area, but now there are only a couple and virtually the only time that they are deployed is when a member of the public rings the Council or a councillor and tell them that a road side drain is blocked.

    I know this from personal experience and to be fair once an issue has been highlighted the drains are unblocked.

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    The Eagles Meadow management employ a cleaning company to supply workers for the site. You often see them walking up and down the main plaza sweeping up litter as they go.

    Yes I realise that, so why can’t it be done for the rest of the town, or maybe get the Council Streetscene team to do it to that standard !!!

    Agreed Matt, but something needs to replace it ?

    When walking through town its like a different place once you go over the bridge to Eagles Meadow or from the other way from the Tesco end, the shops maybe struggling down there but the whole place is immaculate as far as litter fag ends etc. goes.

    Why can’t the rest of the grubby town follow suit ?

    I think the average speed cameras are going to be part of the infrastructure on most UK roads soon.

    Most on here will disagree, but the sooner the better, something has to be done to curb the ever increasing speeds and poor driving, not just top speeds which in good conditions may well be ok, but zipping in and out tailgating all causing accidents needs to be addressed.

    We may not see it but eventually there will be driver less cars that are programmed to be a certain distance between each other.

    ‘From the above comment, (something being done earlier) what I don’t understand is you rarely see the same people twice, are they being brought into Wrexham somehow from somewhere ?’

    I disagree.
    The last 3-years in particular when the problem of NPS crack cocaine and heroin abuse has come into vogue in Wrexham, the offenders are predominantly of local origin. And sadly long-term residents of the Wallich projects and services in the immediate area of the ‘Wrexham Golden Triangle’.
    The’Golden Triangle’, being Chester Street, Waterworld, The Library, The Bus Station, Grosvenor Road, and Rhosddu.
    They’re all familiar faces. Their names commonly known. Their pictures appearing in the local media, BBC videos etc
    The Council identified that a great number of those engaging in anti-social behaviour at the Groves ‘commune’ weren’t homeless. Had addresses etc
    Council acted on advice from the various agencies, Police etc who asked people not to give donations etc because it just funded their habits. Basically these people were not homeless. Just people with addictions

    I and many others who see them regularly would have to disagree with your disagreement, there are different people all the time and getting more of them all the time, even although they are kept out of the bus station now, maybe they are breeding in the said car park !

    Under rule 148 of the Highway Code it states that “Safe driving and riding needs concentration. Avoid distractions when driving or riding such as eating and drinking.”

    Doesn’t a Drive-thru encourage this? If I were PC Plod, I would be sat outside writing £100 tickets and 3 points on their licences!

    The days the police had the time and the will to do that are long gone !!

    The council and police are all over this like a rash now, they only respond to issues when complaints are made these days, so keep complaining.

    Got to agree £275 k is a lot of money to be spent on this particular project, but I also think something needs to be done to curb speeding and general poor & inconsiderate driving which I am sure is resulting in ever more accidents.
