Seymour Street/Perth Road

At the south end of Seymour Street, there is an area of grass on the south side down which water constantly flows, and then across the pavement of Perth Road.

Needless to say, in winter, the water freezes, meaning that the pavement becomes a sheet of ice. It is just as well there's the grit bin nearby (see right)!

I met with a local resident on-site last week and we agreed that, given there's a street drain to the immediate west, simply providing a channel to let the water flow into the drain, rather than across the pavement, would be the obvious solution.

I have therefore contacted the City Engineer suggesting this.
