This Council just can’t get it right

The dropped kerb on Matlock Road E10 at the junction with Peteborough Road.

We will make the street environment more accessible to all, in particular by providing dropped kerbs, tactile paving, and other facilities to meet the special needs of people with disabilities.

That’s a Green Charter pledge I keep going back to.

Full marks to the Council for putting in drop kerbs at junctions. No marks at all for repeatedly failing to ensure that they are properly drained.

The photograph below shows the dropped kerb on Cleveland Park Avenue E17 at the junction with Hatherley Road.
