Lovely walk has been spoilt

Further to Mr Milward s letter (January 7), I would like to add my concern about the cycle path along The Esplanade.

Further to Mr Milward's letter (January 7), I would like to add my concern about the cycle path along The Esplanade.

I take my 90 year old father, in his wheelchair, for walks along the seafront in Exmouth and face a dilemma each time. I am a pedestrian so, at first, assumed I should not be on the cycle part of the path - however, at each road crossing point, the wheelchair rattles over horizontal bumps, which is awful for the wheelchair occupant.

I then decided to switch to the cycle part of the path - at the same crossing points, the bumps there are vertical to allow bicycle wheels through and thus a smoother route for wheelchairs. Cyclists, however, make it clear they do not think we are using the correct half?

I have spoken to local councillors but no one seems to be able to give me a satisfactory answer. In the meantime, what was once a lovely walk has been spoilt.
