An “eyesore” created by more than 250 dumped tyres has been cleared after a council enforcement team received a barrage of complaints.
The old tyres were cleared from the Network Rail land in South Tottenham after Haringey Council’s enforcement acted on complaints from the public.
Network Rail carried out the work itself and has also promised to improve security fencing around the boundary to prevent further dumping.
A stretch of vandalised fencing on Network Rail land in Whitehall Street, Tottenham, which became a potential danger to the public, was also repaired by the firm within days of it being reported.
Racist and obscene graffiti on the bridge beside Bruce Grove station in Tottenham was also removed following complaints from passengers who spotted it from passing trains.
Councillor Nilgun Canver, cabinet member for enforcement and safer communities, said: “The council is committed to dealing with eyesores and will continue to work closely with Network Rail to ensure that areas like this are cleared and long term solutions put into place to prevent recurrence.”
