Brent Greens took on Asda in a high-profile two year campaign to put a stop to their lorries endangering pedestrians outside their Wembley Store. This culminated in a victory in April 2009 (Harrow Times). Asda redesigned their loading bay at some cost, erected notices for waiting drivers not to block the drop kerb pedestrian crossing and made a public apology.

However, we have witnessed the return of lorries blocking pedestrian footways and bus stops, in clear violation of traffic regulations.

Shahrar Ali, Brent Green Party spokesperson for environment and planning said: "Brent Greens were determined to put a stop to Asda endangering pedestrians in recent years. We are not prepared to have them return to their bad old ways!"

Dr Ali continued: "We have witnessed increased lorry violations in recent weeks and I have now written to Asda again. We succeeded then. We must succeed again. For the good of all law-abiding pedestrians, bus users and motorists."
