I live in Abefoyle Place and have done so for nearly three years. About two years ago gravel was put down on the paths in Aberfoyle Place and in Donnington Street round the corner. We thought at the time that this was prior to the paths being resealed. The gravel is still there and has become progressively rougher. A number of elderly live in Aberfoyle Place particularly with some City Council flats being in the area and other retired people also in residence. Recently, I witnessed my neighbour who has mobility issues having to walk on the road with her walker because the footpaths are too rough for her to negotiate. This will affect a number of people. In addition to this there is a large pothole with a road cone in it right at the entrance in the middle of the road where you turn into Aberfoyle Place from Donnington Street. It is necessary to swing onto the wrong side of the road to exit Aberfoyle Place and this again is a safety issue. I would ask that these issues receive some urgency due to the risk involved to the residents in the area. Anyone with any mobility issues at all, whether it be using a walker, walking stick or mobility scooter is unable to walk on the paths at present and must place themselves at risk of falls or worse by having to walk on roads, where traffic is compromised by already having to avoid potholes without introducing the extra "hazard" of pedestrians sharing the roads!
