54, German Road
26th February 2017
I am wiriting to express my concern about the dangerous state of pavements in the suburbs of Exeter, where I live.
Severe weather last winter caused many of the old paving stones to crack and distort so that they now provide a very uneven surface to walk on. The worst affected areas are in High Street, Queen's Road, and on the corner of St German's Road.
As you well know, many retired people live in the district and these pavements present a particularly serious hazard for them. Walking unsteadily, and perhaps suffering from poor eyesight, an elderly person could all too easily fall and badly hurt himself.
I must urge you to take immediate action to repair the damaged paving stones in order to prevent such accidents from occurring.
