Large numbers of pedestrians and vehciles accessing an underground carpark has polished the concrete surface which becomes incredible slippery when wet. I slipped this morning but managed to not fall over.

When damp or even more-so when wet, this area of concrete which forms part of the footpath, becomes incredibly slippery. I know of 2 people who have fallen.

Thank you for your report. We have assessed it and found that it does not currently meet the criteria for intervention, so will not be fixing at this time. The surface has a rough texture which helps with the grip to footwear. The area will continue to be monitored.
