Road Blocked for more than 6 weeks

Reported via desktop in the Street works and obstructions category anonymously at 08:07, Monday 8 August 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Westminster City Council less than a minute later

Dear Westminster team, I live next door to Homer Street W1H and I walk it 5-6 times a day on my way to Crawford Street and back. The road has been blocked since mid June and the works were supposed to be done by the 31st of July. I understand works can take longer than expected but this one is 8 days overdue and since end of the works started and the barriers were out / holes were dugged I did not see 1 single worker there. My balcony overlooks the street and I am checking many times a day hoping to see that there is any progress but there are none. I tried to see if there is a contractor information around the site but there isn't any. This is a vital street connecting us to the inner Marylebone and out. Who can I contact to get an answer please? Kind regards, Ashraf Agha 07414917380

  • The workers are back and it just happened 1 day after I sent this notice. They work for 5 minutes and leave 1 worker on site. I went back and forth a few times today and the poor worker was board and browsing the internet on his mobile. I cannot blame him as his job is to wait there. There is a new notice replacing the old one that was supposed to be from 15 June until 31 July. The new expected date now is on 13 of August (in 2 days). With the speed of work and what is left to be done, I am sure this will not be done on the 13th. Is there anyone from Westminster monitoring these contractors? Hope we will get an answer,
