Palletline defends itself after residents launch attack

  • 01 January 2013
  • By Chris Druce

Palletline has defended itself after residents complained that vibrations from trucks accessing its London hub in Perivale were causing property damage.

A local residents group, led by Vinny K-Maddage, has garnered coverage in the local media, putting Ealing Council and Transport for London under pressure to act.

However, Palletline said that despite having operated from Perivale for the past five years, it was only made aware that residents had concerns this August. “As a preliminary action, Palletline implemented an alternative preferred route; instructing drivers to go under the railway bridge where possible, rather than via Bilton Road,” said Palletline MD Kevin Buchanan.

“We have offered to meet Mr K-Maddage on several occasions to discuss this in full,” he added. “We are yet to receive confirmation on a particular date, but our door remains open to all while we remain on site. For business reasons, we are reviewing our options to relocate.”

Buchanan added that the pallet network’s schedules are designed to avoid busy times and reduce daytime congestion.

A spokeswoman for Ealing council said it is currently performing vehicle counts along the associated roads to determine the frequency of vehicle movements in and out of the site. It also plans to resurface some of the roads in the new year to reduce noise.
