Once again I am reporting tactile paving damage in the same location.

It is continually driven over by heavy vans and lorries when taking the sharp turn into Chiltern Road. Therefore,crushing the pavement.

This is currently dangerous for all walkers and users of the pavement.

As I said when I reported this a few months ago, there is known to be a registered blind person living near to this location and this pathway is walked daily by said individual.

Last time a quick fix of tarmac was applied to fill /level the damage. However, a longer term approach is needed or this will continue to happen and I will no doubt be reporting it again in a few months. This problem has ONLY started to occur in the period of years where the kerb was lowered for the tactile paving.
