It appears that Council OR Maybe Water Care are installing pipes along Kitchener Road and the area that needs to be considered is from the intersection at the top of Green Lane/Kitchener Road through to Willis Avenue. I have pointed out in the past that this area (Including the top 300 metres of Green Lane)is particularly DANGEROUS to pedestrians. I walk this route daily and one takes their life in their hands walking this stretch. The ground is undulating and difficult to navigate and the passing traffic makes this area HAZARDOUS. MORE SO IN THE DARK. Now is an opportune time for Council to construct a footpath in this area for very little additional expense as part of the reinstatement work AFTER the piping is completed. I would challenge the Mayor and any Councillors to walk in this area at any time & feel safe but more particularly from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Lets say from Willis Ave to Green Lane. The footpath need not be conctete, it could be a metalled or hot mix walking track if that is less expensive and this would make a huge difference to a lot of people walking in this area. Half of this length is actually developed and a footpath should be provided by council in this area and has not been. Please note, also, there is no footpath on the South side of Kitchener Road from the Anzac Road intersection going West. I look forward to a favourable response from Council. Thank you
