In December, Highways restored the pavement outside Trafford House, in Station Way, Basildon and issued 50 tickets to drivers parked there.
But now about 60 pavement slabs are broken and loose because residents from Trafford House and other drivers have been mounting the pavement to get close to Basildon Train Station.Time to issue 50 more?
When our reporter attended the scene a Trafford House resident, who did not want to be named, said “parking there was his only option” and he had “never received a ticket.”OK, 100 more!
A spokesperson for Essex Highways said: “Our engineers have previously carried temporary repairs but motorists continue to mount the pavement to access private land.
We are considering the best permanent solutions to the issue, and this may include enforcement action.”I'd have thought the answer was staring you in the face?
