At least 12 large dangerous holes regarding tree roots reappeared AGAIN!

Reported via desktop in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 14:54, Sun 15 May 2022

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3526737.

Holes once a again returned in the many patches put on. It doesn't need a plater! The tree is growing at a very fast rate and this will not be solved until the tree or roots have been destroyed. The path has a lot of traffic with elderly disabled pensioners, like, myself. Young families with prams walkers leading to a very narrow path with very dangerous steep sides. No lights or rail. I've tripped up often and a big accident just waiting to happen. This problem is ongoing for a few years but first aid does nt help resolve it.

  • Never fixed just thrown a tiny bit of tarmac on each hole. Which will take about a week for the tree roots to push through. Still an accident waiting to happen. And will continue to be until the tree has been removed.
