The tree root impacted area has had some, hopefully temporary, bitumen placed into the crack areas. However this has meant that the angle of incline is difficult for a child's buggy, furthermore I have had to assist elderly persons (twice) on their mobility scooters which have become stuck on the apex of the ridge.
The trust is that the repair is a temporary repair and more appropriate fix is being established.

Good afternoon. I would like to update and assure you that the repair to the surface is only a temporary measure. I am awaiting confirmation as to what is going to be done about the tree before we make any permanent repair here.
