I AM sure that many residents of Eastcote, Pinner, Harrow and other local areas will have noticed by now the proliferation of the cycle images, which have become almost a rash on the road (Eastcote Road) between Pinner and Eastcote - stopping only at the border of the boroughs of Hillingdon and Harrow,where it becomes Bridle Road.
Almost every 20 yards or so one sees a bike symbol. Add in the cycle pathways and one is left in no doubt as to what Harrow sincerely believes to be the future of transportation in the district.
I find that the whole exercise is a wanton waste of Harrow Council taxpayers'hard-earned money and other local residents have expressed astonishment at the amount of white markings and the not inconsiderable cost of applying them.
Perhaps Hillingdon residents should get their retaliation in by demanding that their council paint the outline of a car on Bridle Road every 20 yards or so and write the word 'CAR' on their section of the highway at regular intervals.
Is this just the Harrow Council's highways department spending what is left of its budget before the end of the financial year?
There are plenty of holes and cracks in the roads that could do with some of this money spent on them, rather than mess up the streets with wasteful whiteworks.
