Root heave severely damaging public pavement

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 12:11, Mon 6 September 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The problem to the footway caused by root heave between 53 Milton Road and the corner of Milton Road with Bradstocks way has been worsening over recent years, as the trees involved increase in size. The cracks & bumps created by this cause difficulties for wheelchair users and anyone not too steady on their feet - older folk for example. The problem is worsened by ice, wet leaves etc. Little has ever been done to this path in the 46 years I have lived here, but is certainly becoming much worse.
