COMMENTING on Monday’s Gridlock Chaos in Thurrock, Cllr Peter Smith, Cllr for Aveley and Uplands, said: “Once again Thurrock has been brought to a stand still with little or no explanation from the relevant authorities. Many people were left stuck in their cars for many hours whilst attempting to make routine journeys around the borough.
“I’ve written to the Portfolio Holder for Transport requesting a full timeline response, from the agencies responsible for traffic management, to be presented to the next multi-agency Thurrock Congestion Task Force. I refuse to believe that everything is being done to prevent these, all to regular, events.
“The next meeting for the Thurrock Congestion Task Force is mid January 2019 and I will be demanding immediate action to implement improvements.”
