Brunswick Terrace’s pavement has finally been resurfaced after 10 months of lobbying by Cllr Sarah Whitebread and local residents. The pavement has now been flattened and is in a much better condition.
Sarah said, “It shouldn’t take this long for the Tory-run County Council to fix. The County’s new budget cuts funding for such repairs even more. These sort of small jobs should be sorted out in a matter of weeks.”
After inaction by the Tory-run County Council, Lib Dems have stepped in and installed three new mobility crossings in the city centre.
The new crossings are on Trumpington Street, Tennis Court Road and Jesus Lane.
“These were among the key sites where wheelchair users said they were struggling,” said Cllr Tim Bick, who campaigned for this.
“There are many more needed in the medieval streets of the city centre, but much more progress could be made if the County recognised their responsibility and didn’t just leave it to the City.”
