The walkway behind the cottages on Straiton Road (number 68 to number 48) is in very poor condition. A lot of crumbling paving and dangerously rusted and eroded manhole covers. Some of these manhole covers have a razor sharp edge that is raised up from ground level. Both very young children and elderly residents (some disabled) use this walkway and it's only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt. This walkway is public and hasn't had any maintenance for decades, the rust has become really bad over the last five years.
