Numerous tripping hazards on Harbour Walkway at Hotwells

There are numerous tripping hazards along this walkway, caused by lack of maintenance. There are missing blocks, sharp edges on exposed blocks and the tarmac, and very bumpy tarmac which I have seen cyclists fall off on the bumpy bits (especially young children) and I have seen joggers and pedestrians trip over the exposed edges on my daily commute along there. You can't avoid them when cycling as the Walkway gets so crowded, and you have no other option. Also after dark it is very dark because the trees are so overgrown they don't allow any light from the street lamps to fall on the Walkway, which makes those exposed edges even more dangerous. It's about time something was done to repair and improve it, on such a very busy commuter route. Thank you. M Blake.

  • I agree that the state of this path is very dangerous as the roots from the trees have lifted too many bricks, causing it easy to trip. I’ve done it a number of times and sadly saw an elderly lady trip and land very hard just before Christmas. For such a popular and busy walk way I am shocked it’s been left to get to such a dangerous state
