A record dry and the very hot summer has had its effect on trees and large shrubs as their roots grow bigger and longer to reach deeper and wider for moisture. Therefore some trees beside our many walkways create a safety hazard as tree roots force the nearby pavement to shift creating dangerous conditions for walkers.
You will need to keep your eyes open as your travel the many walkways around the estates for situations as in the photo above. A nasty fall awaits the unwary walker.
BeCA encourages residents to report such instances to Sunshine Coast Council for attention. You do this via the MyCouncil website (HERE), create your account or login, click on “Access MyCouncil Services”, click on “Submit a Request”, click on “General Service Request” and complete the form. If you note the address (e.g. Opposite 23 Erica St) it makes completing the form much easier.
BeCA has forwarded a service request relating to this lifting section opposite a residence in Samson Cct.
