Footpath is very uneven and is a trip hazard.

Reported via desktop in the Pavement and Cycle path category anonymously at 11:37, Sat 26 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 358422.

The footpath running from the end of Brentwood Close to the pedestrian crossing on Sundon road is very uneven. Some parts have raised and others have dropped. It is dangerous underfoot especially after dark as the trees surrounding the area obscure the light from any lampposts and the new LED light gives very little and very localised light at the ‘gateway’ fence by the crossing. The worst part is an almost kerb depth ridge at the crossing end of the path which is shown in the picture. This has been bad for at least 3 1/2 years and is getting worse. I couldn’t get my husbands wheelchair up it when he broke his ankle at that time and had to turn round and go up backwards or go round the other way.
