First up it’s the footpaths around Linear Park which to be quite frank are in a terrible state with the surface breaking up, flooding etc, a real hazard if a young child falls. We have asked the Council to deal with this before, but they have always said ‘There are no actionable defects’.
We have now asked one of the Managers for Highways to become involved and we hope he will view this area as needing some sort of resurfacing or repair.
While we we walking the road we noted that in places the new surface is breaking up quite badly. It’s particularly bad near to the junction with Garden Hey Road and we have asked the Council to get the contractor back to remedy all the faults and sweep away the loose chippings. It’s fair to say that the quality of workmanship at this location is less that satisfactory.
