Trinity Road, Marlow - large vans and courier vehicles using road to turn and continually breaching pavement and creating a potential dangerous environment for pedestrians and repeated damage to our boundary wall.

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 14:01, Mon 13 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5205758.

A portion of Trinity Road was officially closed to through traffic and officially became vehicle free in March 2022. I must stress that I fully support this action, however as a direct result large delivery vans and couriers now continually use the space in front of our house as a turning space as they can no longer travel through to Wethered road once they have made their deliveries. Our garden wall has been hit several times and now (having stood there for roughly 80 years) is completely destroyed leaving our property exposed. Not only is this of personal concern to us as we have young children but it is also a threat to any person using the pedestrian pavement as these vehicles are breaching the pavement itself, as well as leaving pedestrians vulnerable to a damaged, heavy wall. Note this is also a popular route for school children coming from Holy Trinity and Sandygate Church of England Schools. Could you please send someone as a matter of urgency to look into this. Some discreet metal bollards would possibly protect the pavement from being breached and allow us to rebuild without risk of it happening again.
