Pavement totally lifted and broken up by large conifer tree in close proximity

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category by Shaun Nicholas at 13:22, Wed 24 January 2018

This pavement has been broken for several months and at night it is treacherous to use. It looks like the tree roots have disturbed the ground and causing the pavement to lift and break.

    I am very disappointed with the 'repair' , the path is still unsafe to use, a tree root still laying on top of the pavement and the surface is not suitable for walking upon.

  • Not the expected level of craftsmanship from the council's repair. Very disappointing.
