At the back of the pavement there is an open gap and a drop down the slope into the River Trym. Any pedestrian could fall down this into the river , perhaps trying to evade the heavy traffic on this road, or any vehicle could veer off the road into the river. This dangerous situation was reported in April 2019. Eighteen months later nothing has happened. On the map the problem does not appear with a red flag as an unfixed problem. It is only when one reports it as a problem does one find that there are red flags already there posted in April 2019. When will these railings be replaced and the public danger averted ?
