Top of Birds Hill - East side

Reported via desktop in the Pavement and Cycle path category anonymously at 11:11, Wednesday 22 June 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 372774.

The height of the pavement only allows for about three metres visibility from the driveway of Holly Tree Farm. It is becoming increasingly difficult (over 20 years) to exit the property. There is no requirement for the pavement (which is in poor condition) to be at this height now that the Baptist Chapel is no longer. Please could consideration be given to lowering the summit of the footpath (which is about two metres above the height of the road) and improving the surface of the pavement. This would improve overall safety along Leighton Road/Birds Hill
