I would not venture into this area on my own even in the daytime due to fear of attack. This badly designed housing estate has prioritized cars over pedestrians and cyclists, forcing them to use unsafe routes through parkland. I have to walk over 10 minutes extra to keep to safe roads only and avoid unsafe cut-throughs via parkland/woods.Track:
Problem
track
178986Photo #178986Unsafe area due to limited street lighting and dense wooded area on the side where the pavement is located which leads to very icy pavement. Vulnerable and lone pedestrians feel unsafe when walking along this steep pavement (even in the day) as they could be easily pulled into the woods and assaulted, and/or fall due to ice on path in winter. Pavement is needed on the other side of the road which backs on to housing as this would be a lot safer, would link into existing pavements and would be in the sun more during the winter, reducing icy surfaces.Track:
Problem
track
178985Photo #178985All streetlighting was completely removed by the local council from this stretch of road (between Hunsbury Hill Road and Ladybridge Drive, NN4) in 2016 and has never been replaced. Lone and vulnerable pedestrians (especially women and children) now feel extremely unsafe when walking along this unlit path, especially after dark. The council has not taken into account the increased risk of potential attack and/or accident in this area due to insufficient lighting. Please can adequate street lighting be replaced in this area urgently as there is no alternative safe route as other areas go through parkland and wooded areas.Track:
