Eroded path surface has led to raised kerb, approx 10cm higher than the level of the public foot path leading to Kennington playing fields, creating serious trip hazard for pedestrians using the path. Either the kerb should be lowered, or the path should be made up to the kerb level.

  • This problem is fixed, insofar as I heard nothing from the council and ended up fixing it myself. I had already been injured at this location (lacerations to hands and severe bruise to leg) and wanted to avoid any other injuries to members of the public waiting at this spot to cross the road, only to experience a both-feet trip from the kerb in front of them when they tried to cross. I think the council should still attend this location and effect a permanent and professional repair.
