Loose kerb stones opposite a grade 1 listed church causing a tripping hazard.

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 10:36, Monday 13 May 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

These kerb stones are continually being knocked out and dislodged by a number of heavy vehicles (including refuse collection vehicles) that navigate a narrow corner and always drive over the corner kerb. The dislodged stones are a tripping hazard for the many people who walk down Church Street. The church is in constant use and open to visitors every day. It is also a venue for exhibitions and concerts in addition to church services, weddings and funerals. It needs to be repaired with a metal kerb as this is a constant problem and previous repairs last only a matter of a few weeks. The church will be open during Oxford Art Weeks from Saturday 18th until Monday 27th May.

  • Thank you for the repair that was carried out by several workmen on Wednesday 15/05/19. Unfortunately, the refuse vehicle drove over the kerb on the morning of 16/05/19 and dislodged one of the stones. As this is a recurring theme, perhaps a metal kerb may be a more long term and cost effective solution?

    State changed to: Open

  • Agree with above the previous repair are a waste of money.
