The Tribune (NZ) - - OPINION -

A lot of foot­paths in Palmy have re­ally be­come mine­fields now au­tumn is in full swing. Foot­paths are cov­ered in pretty orange and yel­low leaves, cov­er­ing up all the pot­holes, bumps, lumps and bro­ken glass.

The foot­paths are atro­cious as they are, but now that you can’t see what lies be­neath the au­tum­nal cov­er­ing, they are un­safe, par­tic­u­larly if you are a mo­bil­ity scooter pi­lot.

Come on PNCC, start spend­ing less money on cy­clists who have al­ready claimed the foot­paths and pedes­trian cross­ings, so do not need any ex­tra sup­port, and start fix­ing all the poor qual­ity third world foot­paths, in par­tic­u­lar the ones visi­tors to Palmer­ston North have to use.

Do we not have any civic pride?

Al Win­der Palmer­ston North
