Ill fitting soggy ply ramps and loose netting on a too narrow temporary footpath

A lovely wide pavement has been closed off and it’s place a too narrow temporary way barriered off. The ramps were always poorly fitted and are now so soggy they give as you step on them. I am partially sighted and my disabled husband needs me to hold his hand for balance. It’s too narrow to effectively do this. He’s twice fallen badly, tripping on the edges the ramps leave. The last time he fell onto my rollerball stick and bent it badly so I need a new one. My roller ball also gets caught in the loose netting. We now try to avoid crossing at the lights just above the Northcote Rd stop coming back from the centre and cross at the traffic island just opposite the labour club. My husband hasn’t tripped this way and so far I haven’t led us into the path of incoming traffic. For road safety I’d rather cross this busy road by the traffic lights with pedestrian crossing. But this builders barricade is so difficult to navigate and badly thought out that it’s safer to cross at the island
