“… coming back from church on Sunday I met a neighbour. He was having great difficulty trying to get on to the pavement with his scooter at the bottom of West Wynd – east side. There has been scaffolding there for a while – it’s gone now but the workmen have put back a high kerb instead of a low one. You can see it quite clearly. It’s a pity after all the work that’s been done.”
I took up the matter with the City Council and have had the following positive response :
“I looked at this section today and can see why there is an issue with wheeled access on East side of West Wynd. This section which is quite narrow was lowered some considerable time ago. A utility reinstatement has been undertaken just to the north and whilst high is not a contributory factor.
I will add this to be improved on next year’s work load.”
I should stress that “next year” means the new financial year starting April – not in 2012!
