Tripping hazard

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 13:09, Wednesday 19 June 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Raised tree root from incomplete removal following tree felling has left a tripping hazard on the pavement where the roots have caused the tarmac to be raised. With both elderly people and small children in the area and a high footfall from the nearby school and church, this is creating a severe hazard that could lead to serious injury.

Roots need to be killed, removed and tarmac relaid

  • This was reported and rejected several times before. Good to see it has now been recognised as an issue and will be fixed, hopefully soon
