  • 53 Woodbine St Quincy, MA - Quincy
    At the enterance of the Wollaston T station and the two other intersecting streets there needs to be a stop sign and cross walks. Folks are speeding through there and I have watched several folks almost get hit. Please do something to slow traffic! Put stop signs on all sides.
  • 285 Newport Ave Quincy, MA 02170, USA - Quincy
    There's a sewer drain near the Wollaston to North Quincy shuttle bus stop that is completely caved in.
  • Newport Ave And Beale St Quincy, MA - Quincy

    The pedestrian "walk signal" at Newport Ave and Beale St is not working properly. When you press the walk signal the visual walk sign does not work in all directions, the audible beep does work. with the visual sign not working it is confusing to both pedestrians crossing the street and vehicles taking a legal right on red onto Beale St heading to Wollaston and the vehicles taking an illegal right on red in the other directions.

    thanks

  • 275 Hancock St Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    Any plans to regulate/monitor tour/coach buses from picking up and dropping off in North Quincy and Wollaston neighborhoods such as McDonald's and T stations?
  • T bus Acknowledged
    N. Central Ave Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    With the route change of the 211 bus now using Brook St and N. Central, the increased traffic is causing huge damage to the already pathetic streets. Particularly the intersections, No crosswalk whatsoever @ Highlands & Brook for Wollaston school kids.
  • 86 Town Hill St Quincy 02169, United States - Quincy
    Town Hill Street has potholes from Centre St to Granite St. I have seen roads in war zones that have less pot holes than this road. The entire road is one pothole after another.

    605 Woodbine Street Quincy, MA 02170, United States of America - Quincy
    Pothole at Wollaston station shuttle stop
  • Potholes Acknowledged
    173 Highland Ave Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    From roughly 173 Highland Ave to the corner of Highland and Beale Street (the Wollaston school), the roads are in terrible repair and have been for years. This is the only stretch of the flat section of Highland Avenue that hasn't been touched in the 21 years I've lived in this neighborhood. When is this being slated for repaving?
  • Snow Plowing Acknowledged
    513 Hancock St Quincy, MA, 02170, USA - Quincy
    This is a shortcut to Big Y Market used by many residents of Wollaston who choose to walk rather than take a car to shop. This includes the senior and disabled residents of Fenno House. Every time there is inclement weather this area -- be it snow, sleet or heavy rain -- invariably is ignored or barely acknowledged until a citizen steps up to say something. So I'm saying something. I wish the City of Quincy, KimCo Realty property management for North Quincy shopping plaza and all of the abutters of this alley would just do the right thing and make this area safe for all neighbors but especially for the seniors. The property has serious drainage problems which will be evident once again when we get a heavy downpour of rain and this ice rink is turned into a small lake. Please find a permanent solution. Thank you.
  • 41-75 Weston Avenue Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    The Weston Ave. access point to the MBTA Wollaston station parking lot is locked for a reason. When this gate was installed it was to be available only for emergency purposes and NOT for the convenience of LMH personnel. The gate actually replaced a barricade which could not be opened (it was a series of empty oil drums, chain links and metal posts installed across the sidewalks (you can still see one of the posts now corroding along the fence bordering the Wollaston Child Care Center – the posts were removed about six years ago).

    LMH personnel have cut the chain (the locked padlock is on the chain. As a result anyone can swing the gate open on to Weston Ave./Wayland St. and impede motor vehicles.

    The Weston Ave entrance borders the Wollaston Child Care Center on Weston Ave. It is not appropriate for construction vehicles or even personal motor vehicles to be entering and exiting through this access point.

    Will the MBTA be liable should someone be struck by this gate? After all, the MBTA is so concerned about customer safety which is their excuse to close Wollaston Station for two years.

    Please close and lock this gate and instruct LMH personnel that this gate is only for emergency purposes. Period.

  • 511r Hancock Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    This is the entrance used by residents at Fenno House as well as many dozens of residents in this section of Wollaston who walk to Big Y Supermarket. The person(s) who cleared this entrance obviously has not compassion for the elderly or physically challenged. They did not clear the wider entrance between the two yellow poles, thus a personal shopping cart cannot be rolled through this entry. Seriously, why is commonsense as well as a little compassion too much to expect?
  • 21 Weston Ave Quincy, MA - Quincy
    to those of us who want to walk down Weston Ave safely using the sidewalks that border their property. The lack of snow removal forces us to walk in the street which is not safe in the evening. Also they need to remember to clear the sidewalk adjoining both their property and the entrance to Wollaston Child Care. No one can safely walk on that section of sidewalk in its current state of solid ice. Thank you!!
