The pavement has a thin layer of silt washed up by road users due to drains blocked with silt. This is a slip hazard as it is on a hill This has been raised a number of times This has been reported previously FMS ref no. 2295377 The pavement has a thin layer of silt washed up by road users due to drains blocked with silt. Current FMS ref no 22939927 Previous FMS ref no. 2486229/ 2295389/ 2486207 This has a number of issues: The bottom of the hill is often flooded when it rains which is problematic for road users and pedestrians The adjourning pavement is splashed repeatedly with water and silt which means once dried there is a loose layer of silt which is dangerous to walk on and is a trip hazard. Both elements need to be done at the same time as if you do the highways work and remove the silt, then the rainfall will move the pavement silt back into the drains and you are back to the same position.
