So basically, just in case you don’t believe cars are being repaired as a business on Riverdale please see the above pictures. As stated over the last few months, the road is being used as an extension to illegally repair cars, which means pedestrians can not safely access the public footpath meaning I can’t walk on that side of the road with my elderly mother. How many more times? What has got to happen before you take this seriously?
