Block this 'dangerous' underpass

 

AN underpass in the centre of Yate could be blocked up – because it is "unpleasant, and potentially dangerous" for people to use.

South Gloucestershire Council is asking people to have their say over the future of the subway under Kennedy Way, next to Yate Shopping Centre.

The council said: "The underpass attracts anti-social behaviour, resulting in it being littered with broken glass and drug related litter. This makes it unpleasant, and potentially dangerous for people to use."

The authority is holding a consultation before deciding whether to bring in a Public Spaces Protection Order to close the underpass off – and eventually even fill it in.
