Grantham Journal letters: Why was dropped kerb removed?

By Grantham Reporter

Does Richard Davis actually answer to emails.

Several weeks ago I emailed him to ask him why when they did work on Avenue Road they removed the dropped kerb at the St Peter’s Hill end outside the church opposite the council offices.

This dropped kerb is where my wife uses her mobility scooter to cross over Avenue Road and go round the council offices to the front of the Guildhall to cross over St Peter’s Hill, to then cross the High Street to the Morrisons centre. This we have found is the safest way for her to get over the roads rather than try to cross Castlegate, then Elmer Street, then up to the High Street to cross at Boots which can be dangerous the way traffic uses that junction.

Now one day I was talking to a member of the council, explaining to them this dropped kerb had been removed and that I had emailed Richard Davis to ask why it had been done. Their answer was that they didn’t know it had been removed and would look into it.

Now while I was talking to the council member a lady on a mobility scooter was behind us and heard what was said. She commented that she and her friends also used that route and they now struggled to cross the High Street safely now the kerb had been removed.
