This repair using tarmac in place of standard ribbed paving puts at risk sight impaired pedestrians and if further repairs are carried out in this way then this will erode the consistency of tactile margins to the pedestrian zone. It negates the whole purpose for using this national standard for shared spaces. I believe that this potentially creates a risk for a person who is visually impaired stepping into the path of a vehicle in a very busy corner of Stall Street with Lower Borough Walls.
