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 […]

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 […]

Litter along St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 10 October, 2013

I am increasingly irritated with Transport for London and their attitude to the A217.  It is particularly bad along the stretch North of Church Hill road, near Matlock Gardens and Matlock Place.  TFL are responsible for keeping the grass verges litter free, yet they appear to think that if they just go and pick up the […]

Thank You Transport for London

by Mary Burstow on 21 November, 2012

  Last month, I wrote to Transport for London, complaining about the poor state of the concrete posts along St Dunstans Hill.  Some had clearly rotten and needed replacing.  I was very pleased to see the men from TFL hard at work this week replacing them.  Many thanks.

Tree Planting along St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 22 October, 2012

Normally I am having a rather good moan, in my blog about Transport for London.  But not this time.  I saw them today out tree planting along the embankments of the A217.  The men told me that they were doing it along the stretch from the Lumley Road junction down to Abbots road on both sides. […]

Litter Cleared Away from St Dunstans Hill

by Mary Burstow on 8 April, 2011

I first reported to the council over two months ago, the flytipping at the bottom of the embankment, close to Church Hill Road and St Dunstans Hill.  Amongst the problems we had to overcome, were “Who owned the land?” and  “Was it Transport for London or London Borough of Sutton of Sutton who was responsible […]
