Council launches road reporting system

First published in News Kidderminster Shuttle: Photograph of the Author by , Reporter

WORCESTERSHIRE County Council has launched a new online reporting system for the county’s roads.

It follows one of the council’s main objectives of engaging and listening to residents about improvements to highways throughout the county.

The Report It facility allows people to log on from a home PC as well as mobile devices, tablets and laptops, and pinpoint the location of the problem.

From there, engineers can investigate the issue.

To access the Report It facility visit worcestershire.gov.uk/reportit

New System? I've been logging on to the County Council site for over 12 months reporting pot holes and blocked drains. I have found it works when I've reported anything.

In that case, please tell them to paint a box junction where North Quay, Croft Road and Dolday meet. The traffic on Croft Road is at a standstill (which spreads all the way to Barbourne Road) during rush hour purely because of the idiots who block the junction.

Yes, I also used it months ago. And didn't they report this 'new' system only a couple of weeks back? Does no-one at WN remember what they've already written? It was pointed out then that it wasn't new. Is this Highways/WN trying to distract us from the real issues by giving us shiny toys to play with? I think it may be...

Because they won't listen.

It's the zebra crossing by the railway viaduct that causes the traffic to back up to Barbourne. It should have been a pelican but heh-ho you don't expect any common sense from highways.

Spot on. I hate that zebra crossing. People just blindly walk over it and even cycle straight over without even looking. Cars sometimes even stop when they see people getting near to it (as opposed to when somebody is in the process of stepping onto it as per the highway code). I have seen this and the people didn't even want to use the crossing and continued on the same side. This also adds to the hold up. At peak times, the flow of pedestrians is almost constant which causes traffic to go back as far as Barbourne. It most certainly should have been a pelican crossing forcing pedestrians to bunch up and cross in larger groups giving a more balanced flow of both cars and people. Typical cheapo budget we get though. Rather than spend on lights and the associated technology, we get a couple of orange globes, and a pot of white paint ! Worcester's road infrastructure sucks big time.

Well if you can't even be bothered then you deserve to sit in traffic.

It is not a case of can't be bothered. I made my comments to generate a discussion which resulted in a couple of interesting comments in addition to your rather pathetic response.
