Since Thorneyfields Lane Stafford ST17 9JY 52.788441, -2.142030 motor way bridge works were carried out as part of M6 Widening works a large section as marked on the map of pedestrian barrier fencing has been left missing with only inadequate crowd barriers in its place which are regularly vandalised and not secured properly with sections missing allowing free access to the bank down to the M6 where a new path has been installed for access. Also the small wooden gate to stop access on to the M6 its self is WIDE OPEN! Unsecured and is no deterrent to trespass at all! its disgusting how this has been left and is nothing short of total criminal neglect as a clear and present danger to life! How long will you leave this mess? are you waiting for that small child to wonder on the the live M6 carriageway and DIE? This is nothing short than an emergency safety hazard and needs escalating immediately please. Call me on 07813979137 for more information if required.
