Pavement surface irregularities present walking difficulties

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Over the last 12 years, I have watched our pavements being dug up and replaced by the gas, water, electricity services, and Gigaclear etc. I am also 12 years older, and less stable on my feet. I am prompted to write, following witnessing an old gent tripping and falling on the pavement between Sandleigh road and the shops, and I've stumbled here, myself . A site visit will quickly show you that the North side is in poor condition, while on the South side, a section of about 200m long, opposite Manor Road, is breaking into fine granite chippings. (I've been told that the N side was originally laid by Polish POWs, in1946, and was last replaced about 40 years ago by Ameys - as their main entrance was where Manor Road now is.) Several have commented on the (excellent) early 2022 resurfacing of 400m of Cumnor Road pavement - noting that that pavement has a MUCH lighter footfall than the Sandleigh Rd to the shops pathway. Please consider this section, for 2022 replacement.
