  • These railings have not been repaired and are situated at one of the busiest road junctions in Dumfries . if a child were to walk through while waiting at the junction to cross at the adjacent crossing. so it needs to be repaired for safety reasons.

  • This missing railing has still not been repaired and it’s on a very busy traffic junction and pedestrian crossing. What the point in reporting issues like this and they are just ignored by Dumfries and Galloway council.

  • It is still not repaired how many times does one have to report issues like this to Dumfries and Galloway council before they take heed . This is possibly a health and safety issue.
