Discussion and debate on the issues affecting Portobello

Rat-running and large vehicles (Bath St, Straiton Pl etc)

Postby Puerto bella » 26 Jul 2009, 00:27

So fed up with the rat running that goes on in these parts, the inconsiderate drivers that speed past my front door (on the pavement) is one thing we have to contend with but the number of lorries, delivery vehicles and generally large vehicles that come down Bath St street daily. I am now counting at least 7 - 9 every day between 6.45 and 10.30. Am I being unreasonable? I think not.

Why, oh why are restrictions on vehicle size ok in some places but in Porty residential streets its ok for them to do what they like? What is so difficult about a one way system or a Home Zone between Bath St and Bellfield. Why is it so hard to come to a sensible arrangement about delivery restrictions and servicing of commercial premises? I know its all been looked at supposedly, bla, bla, bla but its about time it was looked at again. Anyone want to help me with my crusade, or at least a survey of the rat running for starters?

Yip, just photographed that lorry as well as we sat in the lounge wondering if he was going to make an impromptu appearance for some lunch as well - though the window - aaarrrrrrrhhhhhhh.

I have spoken to the manager of the co-op on several occasions. Mr Pb too, although on the last occasion after the third time a co-op lorry had bashed the corner of the house Mr Pb lost it and almost ended up driving our old volvo into the co-op just to make a point! Thankfully he calmed down by the time he'd walked back down the road. Its Mr Valentine's attitude that really sucks, he says he can do nothing or he too blinkin lazy to to anything.

I will be writing to the council and police about the volume of HGVs in the street and lack of adherence to the highway code about driving on the pavement. Anyone else who wants to write in or get a copy of my letter is welcome to. Maybe if more of us complain then something will get done about it.

I'd suggest blocking off that corner of Bath St/ Straiton Place much in the same way they did Rosefield Ave and Portobello High St . or alternatively the corner of Straiton place Bellfield Street.
That would make it less attractive as a rat run in if was a no through road

Less cars would do it, though I recognise that's not a solution in the "something likely to happen" sense of the word.
