Road is being widened and new speed bump added at mini roundabout junction between Main road and Berrywood road.

  • All lights are stuck on red on the afternoon/evening of Tuesday 8 September. It has been reported to 101 but they aren't classing it as a urgent case. Drivers are unaware what is happening. 4 residents have been trying to get the rush hour traffic moving but have been told to let motorists drive through with caution.

  • These roadworks were planned to take 11 weeks from 29 June it is now 11 weeks and 4 days. There has been no one on site for the last 4 weeks. What on earth is going on here? It is just so frustrating. Another complaint I have is the terrible congesting on Camelot Way due to parents dropping of their kids and parking all along and it sometimes blocking driveways. I drove along it this morning and it was a nightmare to gain access to my home. My son was very rudely spoken to yesterday morning by someone blocking his way. 20 or so cars were parked halfway on the pavement on Berrywood road, the Duston school has apparently blocked their drop off point causing the vast majority of these hold ups with no thought whatsoever of the consequences for residents now there's a surprise.

  • The bump has been reworked, but is still monumentally massive for anything that drives on a road.

  • The work now appears to be complete yet the traffic calming ramps are far too severe, if I roll down the Main Road village exit ramp the front valence of my car scrapes on the road. I have just walked past the junction & two cars exiting Berrywood Road both caught their valence, one of which was a Ford Ka. The traffic calming at this junction is not fit for purpose and I for one will pursue this matter to conclusion.

  • Please see photographs attached showing the Berrywood Road ramp and multiple scuff marks from the underside of vehicles which will all be showing signs of damage caused by this severe ramp. Note from the photos that the ramp appears to be almost to severe for the local buses which only just clear the road if they hit the ramp at very slow speeds. I note that you were aware of the ramp issues long before the work was finished.

  • Berrywood Road ramp on this roundabout entry and exit is Damaging the underside of every car I've been over it in. Please can it be fixed urgently It is causing lots more traffic to use southfield road to avoid the roundabout.
