Complaints over condition of Railway Trail
Overgrown grass has left a section of the Railway Trail almost impassable, an area resident said yesterday.
The man said a recently installed pedestrian bridge over Store Hill in Smith’s had been a benefit, but the state of the surrounding area made it impossible to walk with a baby stroller.
The resident added: “It’s completely unpassable unless you are on a horse.
“It’s a great bridge, but it’s useless to have a bridge if everything around it is impassible.”
The resident said he had often walked on the pathway and it did not appear there had been any upkeep done for several months.
He said: “I went for a walk with my daughter, who is 11 months old and was in her pushchair.
“We went to go across the bridge, but the grass was too high. It was higher than her in her push chair.
“I went around the other way and had the same problem.”
