A BEDFONT resident who describes her road as "the worst in the borough" is finally seeing some action being taken.
Elaine Lloyd, of Fawns Manor Road, contacted The Chronicle after approaching her local authority about work needed to repair the surface, but with no success.
She said she has been pushing for it to be resolved since last year, and has serious safety concerns about the the safety of both motorists and pedestrians.
In her investigations, Mrs Lloyd discovered that part of the road is managed by the council, and the other part is run by Hounslow Homes.
She said this split in responsibility for the road has resulted in its neglect.
Mrs Lloyd said: "I have been trying to get the road resurfaced for some time now, it's in a dreadful state. There are a lot of elderly people living on this road and if they can't use their wheelchair on the footpath for whatever reason, it is virtually impossible for them to go on the road. It's disgusting. It is the worst road in the borough."
Mrs Lloyd said the surface is badly broken up, with the top layers of concrete coming away. She said a lack of funds was the reason given to her as to why the road could not be fixed last year.
After being approached by The Chronicle for comment Hounslow Council carried out an inspection on Monday, which found "no hazardous defects."
A spokesman said: "The last stretch of carriageway required immediate attention. This section is maintained by Hounslow Homes."
Hounslow Homes have confirmed that they will be carrying out works on the road within the next week.
A spokesman said: "Last year a Hounslow Homes estate inspection revealed the need for improvements on Fawns Manor Road. The West Area Forum applied, successfully, for funding through Project Empower with works due to begin on March 7."
