Pavements - Seafield Road

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking with residents from Rose Lodge in Seafield Road. The residents recently had a meeting and concerns were raised about the state of the pavements in Seafield Road, particularly given that some of the residents have mobility difficulties.

As the photos (right and below) indicate, the pavements are in poor condition in places - the photo (right) in particular shows how the south footpath (opposite 52-60) has been badly damaged by vehicles mounting the pavement due to the narrowness of the roadway.

I have raised the residents' concerns with the City Council's City Development Department, requesting repairs and provision of a safe walking surface.
