It is now 16 months since my elderly neighbour from 33 Coombe Bridge Avenue tripped and fell heavily on the 8th February 2021 on the uneven concrete outside No 15 CBA.-The first 2 photos show the badly cracked pavement outside No 17 then the concrete outside no 15. At my request, I had a visit from the Highways Mgr and supervisor in March 2021 when the sections outside no 15& 17 plus badly cracked pavers outside 22 and 24 CBA were shown and marked. I have had NO feedback from the Highways people concerned and no action has been taken although I was told yesterday that 2 pavers outside no 17 were replaced leaving the surrounding cracked pavers untouched. More seriously, the pavers outside No22 CBA are the worst in the road and dangerous for mobility vehicles and pedestrians.
I have suggested on many occasions to replace all cracked rectangular slabs by smaller square pavers of the type photographed outside my house no 37 as these seem much more resistant to delivery vehicles parking off road as is often the case with so much building work at present.
It is disgraceful that despite face to face meetings, the highways peoples concerned have not reported back nor action taken, the least they could do.
