The footpath on Aughrim Place between Carnew Street and Oxmantown Road is badly damaged and cracked due to cars and vans mounting the pavement to avoid parked cars. Aughrim place is too narrow for parked cars, but there are only double yellow lines on one side of road. As a result cars have to drive on one side of road and mount pavement causing potholes and damage to footpath. This is very dangerous as I have had cars driving up behind me on the footpath which leads to Carnew Street that has many families with young children. Access needs to be restricted and parking removed.
There has been no progress on this issue. The damaged pavement is getting worse with cracks. The tarmac on the road has been repaired recently but will become potholed again due to excessive traffic on one side of street. Bin Lorries and Emergency Vehicles cannot access lane without mounting the pavement. There should be no parking allowed on Aughrim Place
This provlem has got worse as recently a car mounted the pavement infront of me and the driver shouted aggressively at me to get out of his way. It is now unsafe for pedestrians to walk along the footpath on Aughrim Place due to cars mounting the pavement to avoid parked cars blocking road. This lane is too narrow to allow any parking and double yellow lines should be placed on both sides of the road.
