Heavy lorry attempting 3 point turn did extensive damage to footpath and road surface, loosening kerb stones and significantly damaging Western Power trench fill repair rendering underground cables to damage by water ingress. My neighbour Rik Jones will also report with photos of the lorry and company that did the damage as he witnessed it.
On Friday 16th July, a lorry from ‘Interfuse Building Blocks’ pulled into Post Office Lane, Lyndon, LE15 8TZ, and then attempted to reverse around the corner onto Church Road. The trailer wheels mounted the pavement, causing damage to the stone kerbs, roadway, and pavement asphalt surfaces, not helped given the trailer was fully laden, combined with the acute angle of the tyres and high temperature. Fortunately, the stone wall appears to be okay.
I stopped and spoke to the driver, enquiring what on earth he was doing. He told me he had been trying to deliver to the development site on Glebe Road, North Luffenham, but could not access the site via Luffenham/Lyndon Road. Instead, he was trying to manoeuvre his vehicle around the Lyndon crossroads in an attempt to access via Pilton. I suggested he perhaps didn’t do that either. Eventually, I got him to leave the village using Edith Weston Road.
The road and pavement surfaces require repair, and the kerbstones will need some proper attention to make good.
