Bad condition of pavement creating three issues: 1) Trip hazard. My young child tripped and fell into the road because of the erosion gap left between pavement and curb slab. 2) eroded pavement has left holes where dog wee is consistently sitting stagnent. The area outside my home now smells like a toilet. Despite cleaning it still smells and the wee is back daily and it’s impossible for it to drain away because of state of pavement. I shouldn’t have to live with outside my home smelling like a toilet. 3) it looks dreadful. The rest of the surrounding pavements are in much better condition.
