Dangerous footpath for pedestrians

Reported via mobile in the Missing/broken/rocking/unstable slab category anonymously at 18:01, Monday 12 February 2024

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5567686.

Bottom of the drive of Treglos, Fleet Road, Twyning

I first reported this problem on September 11th 2023, reference 11434976. I didn’t receive a response with the stipulated 10;days and then the report was closed.

This pavement has been deteriorating for a number of years and has now reached the point where it is dangerous to pedestrians. Yesterday a lady caught her heel in it and fell - thankfully she was only grazed but it could have been much more serious. The lay-by is used by parents dropping off and collecting their children from the village hall playgroup next door, so I would not wish to see a young child injure themselves on this pavement.
