Corner of New Inn Hall St and Shoe Lane. The ‘level surface’ street design works reasonably but the kerb here rises and provides a hazard.
Half an hour ago c11.00 I saw an older woman trip and fall. I stopped my bike to assist her. She got up by herself and dusted herself down but insisted on continuing. She had tripped where the kerb is about 2cm or 3cm tall.
I realise that it’s difficult to see the kerb, as it rises very gently, especially when most kerbs nearby are set to be flat. I consider this kerb arrangement to be a trap.
Some kind of quadrant kerb arrangement could be much more visible and would mark the transition from flush to upstand in a much more legitimate way.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

Thank you for your report. The layout on junction was designed to allow clearance from the buildings for vehicles turning into Shoe lane from New Inn Hall street.
We are unable to make any changes to the layout.
