The Council have recently spent our money on replacement of several paving stones and hardcore base which were seriously damaged and dangerous for many months(see photos) There are still broken slabs. This will worsen and re-occur constantly due to heavy cars parked on the pavement after having driven across pedestrian areas at a dangerous junction and busy bus stop. These cars are privately owned and causing dangerous damage to public property. There is suitable free parking across the road in both directions.

    Not fixed. Council repaired some heavy damage to pavement and some slabs still unstable. So bad that there is a traffic cone to prevent a fall and resultant broken hip or ankle. The large cars just park up against the traffic cone after driving across the pedestrian lights crossing and onto the pedestrian walkway. More repair will be needed again

    Large cars parked on pavement and causing ongoing damage despite Council partial repair. Same cars repeatedly parked there. The Traffic cone gets pushed out of position. Last night, with cars gone and in darkness my wife fell over a broken paving stone which collapsed into a water filled void. This could result in repeat serious injuries to pedestrians. An elderly fractured hip is expensive to the victim, the NHS, Government, RBG and therefore taxpayers. Urgent repair is needed AND fixed barriers to prevent illegal driving onto pavement by road vehicles. There is ample free off-road public parking just on the other side of Well Hall road.

    Ongoing problem. Will be a never ending problem because one tonne vehicles will always cause damage to pedestrian pavements. One photo shows a cone in a vain attempt to stop someone falling into the drop on several paving slabs and breaking an ankle or hip

  • The paving slabs is all up again with a gap under them! Owners of cars need telling/fining for causing the damage.

    Heavy cars & enormous SUVs cross pavements at a dangerous junction to park on pedestrian pavements despite ample free parking diagonally across main road. The paving is dangerous and unstable. The council will get sued when the next pedestrian falls due to their failure to enforce rules. We are not happy that we have to pay for regular repair due to selfish drivers breaking the law and RBG not dealing with urgent and dangerous issues
