I also recently asked about the situation in nearby Marchfield Terrace on behalf of residents and am pleased to say that the City Council has advised:
“Marchfield Terrace has been reassessed at 21 points which is likely to mean it will have enough points to be included in the 2012/13 upgrade and adoption programme once the annual list review is completed in the coming weeks.”
Back in 2007, I insisted that the City Council increase its funding on unadopted pavements two and a half fold to £500 000 a year. This was agreed and is making a real difference to poorly conditioned pavements in the West End.
Last month, I was pleased to confirm that, in adon to the upgrading and adoption of the Marchfield Crescent pavements recently, Marchfield Road’s footpath would be similarly upgraded – and I am pleased to see this has now commenced – see above. I am also pleased that the nearby Marchfield Terrace will have its pavements improved in the 2012/13 financial year.
It was through my insistence that the City Council increased its funding on unadopted pavements two and a half fold to £500 000 a year. It is making a real difference to poorly conditioned pavements in the West End and I will continue to campaign for improved pavements across the West End.
Last month, I welcomed the news that the the unadopted pavements in Marchfield Crescent were being upgraded to a good standard. The City Engineer has confirmed to me that similar improvements for Marchfield Road are imminent (has similar priority in the Unadopted Footways Programme).
Residents in Marchfield Crescent are very pleased that the unadopted pavements in the street are currently being upgraded to a good standard and adopted by the City Council – see right.
Back in 2007, I proposed – and the City Council agreed – that funding on upgrading unadopted pavements be increased two and a half fold.
This has made a real difference in terms of getting badly conditioned footpaths made up to acceptable standards – both in the West End and across the city.
