Whilst I have been a promoter of getting the footpath replacement program underway the other issue with footpaths that has taken much of my time is identifying and reporting trip hazards in the “new” brick footpaths.
There are times when I have wondered, and this was confirmed recently by staff as justified, that they may get sick of me reporting issues requiring repair with our footpath network. Well, without much warning to elected members administration have determined that it is appropriate to check all our footpaths.
A good move and one that I support. It will be interesting to see how many issues there are city wide. Of course the percentage of issues should be down in Goodwood South where most of my walking occurs.
Watch out then in a street near you for Infrastructure Management Group Pty Ltd, contractors officers who will be moving throughout the city on Quad bikes capturing the necessary information.
Will the quad bikes be driven on the footpaths (or on the road)?
Given this is an administration initiative I do not know the answer to that question.
I presume, given the comment about the angle and direction of the camera they will be forced to travel the footpath. Having said that all in Unley knows that will very difficult on many of our streets.
Like you I will watch with interest.
I can ask the question if you wish and respond in this platform.
