Dumped cones along St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 6 September, 2014

I don’t mind admitting to hating litter along the verge of the A217, St Dunstans Hill in Sutton.  Much of it is  from people just walking along and chucking stuff on the ground – especially beer cans.  However Transport for London  really made me see red in July. About three months ago, TfL did some […]

St Dunstans Hill is litter free

by Mary Burstow on 1 July, 2014

Many thanks so Sutton Councils street cleansing team, for doing such a good job picking up the litter along St Dunstans Hill by Spring Close Park, then going down the hill to Church Hill road.  It was beginning to look dreadful.  Most of it come from passers by, just dropping litter.  So far as I […]

Helping Pedestrians on St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 8 May, 2014

Whilst in Church Hill Road, I noticed the dreadful state of the pavement, on the stretch of houses, just South of Church Hill Road on St Dunstans Hill.  It looks as there has been a small earth quake!  The pavment is probably suffering from the slope subsiding, as a result of the winter rainfall.  I suspect […]

New Steps for St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 8 May, 2014

In March, I reported to Transport for London the problem of a small stretch of slope, which has become very popular with pedestrians taking a short cut down from St Dunstans Hill to Church Hill road.  It really does need to have some steps put in, to make it easier to use and also safer. Transport […]

A slippery slope in Church Hill Road

by Mary Burstow on 21 March, 2014

I have asked Transport for London, if this little sloping footpath, which runs between Church Hill road and St Dunstans Hill (A217) can be turned into proper steps.  Countless school children going to Cheam High use it rather than walk the slightly longer pavement route.  It is what road traffic engineers call “A desire line” […]

Picking up Litter along St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 5 December, 2013

Whenever I walk up and down St Dunstans Hill, I see litter along the embankment.  It is especially bad between Matlock Place and Church Hill road.  It is the responsibility of Transport for London to pick it up, but whenever I chase, the response appears to be, “Never today, always tomorrow”.  So far as I […]
