Action update: Pavements

I received a letter from a local couple on Barnhill Road yesterday, asking for some help with the condition of the pavements outside their home. This has been a problem highlighted to the St Mary's Focus team before, but despite requests, little seems to be happening from the Labour Council in terms of getting the problem fixed.

Cracked and uneven pavements are a dangerous problem - they can trip walkers up, they are difficult to navigate for people with pushchairs or mobility difficulties, and they are potentially very costly to the Council should anyone get injured. It's a shame that we have to ask time and time again before anything is done to fix the problem.

I am going to see the residents concerned tonight, and will take some photographs of the offending bits of pavement. I will work with Cllr Donal O'Hanlon (your Liberal Democrat Councillor for St Mary's) to again ask the Council to fix the problem.
