ACTION will be taken within the next few weeks to repair Stratford’s treacherous pavements.
The cracked paving slabs which litter the town centre have claimed a number of victims so far this year causing injuries like sprains, bruises and cuts.
Some residents have contemplated claims against Warwickshire County Council highways – the authority responsible for the maintenance of pavements in town.
Dismayed that a major visitor attraction like Stratford has continued to put up with its pavement problem for so long, former mayor of Stratford, Cyril Bennis recently held a two hour meeting with highway officers from Warwickshire County Council which included a walk around all the key town centre streets to inspect the pavements themselves.
As a result, repair work will start on 24 high risk pavements shortly.
