Hounslow Council has launched the first phase of a large-scale cleaning programme due to run until 18 March which they say will see 400 of the borough’s roads vastly improved.

The initiative will target roads across the borough which have been identified as benefitting from ‘deep cleansing’ due to the Council’s scheduled street cleaning service being unable to gain access, primarily due to parked cars.

Starting in the west of the borough, the programme’s first phase will work its way through central, before moving east during 2018 and will involve mechanical and manual cleaning; graffiti teams; gulley cleansing; and environmental officers addressing overgrown vegetation and unlawfully placed domestic and trade waste. The programme will be paused over the Christmas break, from Friday 22 December, to restart after Wednesday 3 January.

Residents are advised that where they see notices displayed, they should not park their vehicles in these roads. A number of streets are scheduled to be cleaned each day, which means that cleaning will commence throughout the day and not necessarily in the morning for some roads.

The maintenance is being led by Hounslow Highways, which manages the borough’s roads on behalf of the Council, and includes pavements and street lighting, as well as providing key services such as street cleansing, winter maintenance and enforcement.

Councillor Amrit Mann, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Hounslow Council, said:“We’re pleased to be working with our contractors Hounslow Highways to ensure the borough’s roads are clean and, most of all, safe. This first stage will involve around 400 of the borough’s roads, so clearly this is a major programme of work being undertaken.

“The Council currently invests £2.7m on average each year in maintaining Hounslow’s roads and pavements and this initiative is just one of the ways we work with Hounslow Highways to deliver essential improvements.”
