SIR, - Two-thirds of the pavements on Manland Avenue, Harpenden, are too dangerous to walk on because there are raised iron-works which anyone could trip over in the dark, or partially-sighted people could in daylight, dawn or dusk.
There are five red warning signs in metal stating: "caution: raised ironworks" and three signs in red with the warning: "temporary footway".
Herts Highways removed the damaged pavements in late January and put in a new base. The snow between February 2 and 9 prevented them from putting in the new top surface.
At 09.05 on Tuesday I spoke to someone at Herts Highways. After taking the details, she gave me an incident number #4788 and put me through to another person in their St Albans office. I asked him why the pavement was not finished soon after February 9 and said that it should now be done immediately. He said he would find out from his colleagues.

In superior countries such as Germany and Finland, this job would have been done better and quicker and would have been finished last week.
