Footpath battle is still on going

RESIDENTS and councillors are still battling to get barriers re-instated on a Kimberley footpath.

The barrier was taken down in Edgwood Road to accomodate the needs of a local resident on a mobility scooter, but neighbours argue it is dangerous because of bikes mowing downs pedestrians.

Cllr Ken Rigby, lookling into the matter, said at a Kimberley Town Council meeting last week he was struggling to find a barrier that would allow mobility scooters through, but keep bikes out.

He said he would look into whether or not the old barrier could be put back up temporarily while the matter was dealt with and resolved once and for all.
