Pavement obstructed by tipper lorries, excavating machinery and railings with no safe place for pedestrians to walk on the pavement either side of the road, nor a safe place to cross. Tipper lorries are present from 7.30am onwards and during school run every morning when families with children are forced to walk in a busy road/bus route. The owner of the property keeps their vehicles parked in front of the railings which means pedestrians have to walk round them in the road. There are a lot of school children walking down St Annes Park Road to get to the bus stop at the bottom of the road.

  • The whole pavement is no blocked by railings at the top of the road. The owners of the property park 4-5 cars in front of the railings so pedestrians cannot use the gutter to walk round the obstruction. There are no pedestrian refuge area for people to cross the road safely. The number 36 bus has a stop on St Annes Park Road and they all have to either crois the road at the bottom to get passed the obstruction or walk in the road. Sometimes the owners vehicles are parked both sides of the road making it very dangerous for children to cross. This deleopement is under investigation for breach of planning and I understamd the HSC has been notified due to the safety of the working site, however this will not address the current safety issue for people using the pavements. There are a number of primary schools in this area so there are a lot of children using thus road to get to school.
