Hi - the berms along the bottom section of Waikato St need attention. There are a lot of minor issues along the street, but the one outside my friends house is particularly bad. There are a lot of gravel stones coming out of driveways and onto the footpath and driveways, making walking hazardous - I have witnessed a young Mum pushing a pram and with a toddler in tow, slip over on the gravel recently, I've seen kids slip on bikes,and I've slipped myself, but didn't actually fall. The grass berm itself is in bad shape. I recently mowed the berms for my friend (who is on an invalids benefit and can't do it herself) and the berm is more dirt and dust and lumps than grass. It's getting a bit dangerous to mow with all the dirt lumps sticking up, and huge 'dents', where people have obviously missed the driveway and driven over the grass to enter or exit. She's happy to look after the berm (as in mowing and watering) but it need smoothing out and re-sowing to be less hazardous.
