Post Carival Clean up

Signs have started going up in some of the side roads off of the Harrow Road.
These are to be steam cleaned after the carnival, this was after KTRA raised the issue with Brent.
The parking will be suspended for a period of time whilst the cleaning is taking place. PLEASE refer to the signs in the street if you are parking.

Thames water *UPDATE*

There have been many local problems with lack of pressure and several water bursts in the triangle recently. Thames water have identified a problem in Berens Road.
This was after the most recent burst, and KTRA member Dave Hallbury highlighting the serious lack of water pressure in the area, even once the burst was repaired. This initiated a huge response from our members, and it would appear this is affecting a large part of the triangle.
The works will be carried out this week on Tues 19th, and will hopefully mean an end to the water pressure issues many have suffered.

Wakeman Road *UPDATE*

We have just received great news from Brent Council

Cllr Simon Green set up a meeting on the 10th July with representatives from Brent Council and KTRA to discus the Wakeman Road project.
This included the complete refurbishment of the flower bed area at the Chamerlayne Road end of Wakeman Road, and at the end of Pember road where the notice-board is going.

This is the reply we got back today from Chris Barrons, the principal landcsape desighner for Brent council:
I have now discussed sources of funding with colleagues and can confirm that both sites can be refurbished in this financial year.  It is my intention to programme the works for completion by end of December 08 

This is great news, it will make such an improvement to the whole area.
Hopefully we will hear back soon about the other end of Wakeman Road soon.

We will keep you posted
