Uneven paving and puddling

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category by N D Searing at 11:33, Fri 19 October 2012

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council 1 minute later

There are numerous undulations in the pavement outside numbers 2 - 10 High Street, Flitwick, which stay full of surface water for days after rainfall. Along with the generally uneven nature of this stretch of paving, which has clearly been dug up many times, it does present a somewhat hazardous route for pedestrians, especially the elderly, mums with youngsters/prams/pushchairs and those, like myself, who unfortunately need to use a walking stick or crutches. Could this stretch be relaid as flat and even as possible, a soon as possible, please?

  • The council acknowledged my report with the usual statutory period for investigating etc. After the last heavy rain, the pavement was as before - lots of uneven puddles.
