Back to all reports

The pavement is on the west side of Dropmore Road and carries a lot of pedestrain traffic between Poyle Lane and the High Street. It is riddled with potholes and unpaved areas full of mud causing a major hazard to the mostly elderley population that use the pavement. Furthermore, in certain places one has to move onto the road to avoid these problems or pass others to maintain a 2 metre distance. This creates a dangerous situation especially as traffic in Dropmore Road mostly does not abide by the 30mph speed limit.

I have lived in Poyle Lane for ten years and no repair work has ever been done to repair this sole footpath into the village. It is a major hazard and puts users into a dangerous situation with trips and falls that may cause them serious injury or to tumble into Dropmore Road where traffic often exceeds the 30mph speed limit.
