Damage to pavement and road surfaces

At the junction of Lauriston Rd and Church Crescent is a pedestrian crossing. There is a dropped kerb at this point and when it rains, a large pool forms on the road. This is very hazardous for pedestrians in that area, as traffic coming round the blind corner tend to cut the corner, go through the rainwater pool and pedestrians get very wet. I have reported this several times before. Next to the crossing is a repaired section of road which has settled. When it rains, rainwater runs through this section and into a void at the edge. This would seem to indicate that there is a hole of some kind in the area, and that there may be a possibility of collapse. Finally, the pavement by the dropped kerb is considerably damaged with hollows and raised parts due to broken slabs. It constitutes a trip hazard and is in a very dangerous spot.
