TRIP HAZARD Raised pathway due to tree root.

Reported via mobile in the Pavements category anonymously at 20:34, Sunday 21 February 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

50 Springfield Avenue. Over the last year, the tree root has pushed up the path and has caused a trip hazard and its now causing damage to drive my way. We are both over 80 years of age and visually challenged. We have stumbled when walking, but thankfully not yet fallen over. There is ongoing work in Springfield Avenue and wonder if this safety hazard can be done at the same time?

  • After reporting this fault and after your engineer has visited site, I am concern that they have missed the issue as depicted in the photograph. White paint has been sprayed on another tree root issue from the same tree, but the fault reported has not identified or marked with white paint. Please update ASAP
