Request for dropped kerbs.Dropped kerbs have been installed at DeHavilland Place completed and closed under per Issue 4182 to assist with disability access for wheelchair and mobility scooter users to gain access to the Bowerhill Sports Field. A further request has been made for dropped kerbs on Hercules Way at the entrance to Gerrishs Yard as this section of footway is the only section in the industrial area from the residential area of Bowerhill which is making access to the Sports Field difficult. Due to the large HGVs using Hercules Way the resident is unhappy travelling on the road in her wheelchair.
