The footways on Cremer Street are narrow and busy at the best of times, but currently people using wheeled equipment -- buggies, wheelchairs etc -- are currently unable to use the footways on either side of Cremer Street west of the railway viaduct without having to bump up kerbs.

This is due to construction sites having been allowed to narrow and obstruct the footways on both sides of the street without ensuring that step-free access and sufficient width are provided in the temporary arrangements.

  • There is still no way for a wheelchair user to get along the footways on Cremer Street on either side without having to bump up a kerb or resort to the carriageway. The diversion of the northern footway lacks a temporary dropped kerb, while the southern footway is still constricted by hoardings and thoughtlessly located road signs.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • Due to the near completion of the development, this is no longer a problem, but it has to be said that the management of Cremer Street during this protracted period of intense construction works has been less than optimal. I hope that both the contractors and the supervising authority can do better in future.

    State changed to: Fixed
