Sidewalks

In 2016, a visual assessment of the sidewalks within the Hamlets of Strome and Galahad identified extensive cracking, spalling and heaving/settlement. The consensus from previous Councils of both hamlets was to maintain the sidewalks for as long as they were repairable and safe for pedestrian usage; once they were no longer repairable or safe for pedestrians, they were to be removed.

Exceptions to this rule include both main streets and all locations in which there exists a sidewalk to a public facility, as well as two blocks on Lady Helen Avenue West in Galahad, which were built over a sewer line.

As sidewalks are removed in both hamlets, the concrete from the sidewalks will be repurposed to build up the walls of the existing lagoons in both Strome and Galahad. Currently, there are no plans to replace the sidewalks that have been removed.

The following maps of Galahad and Strome highlight the sidewalks identified for removal, along with the sidewalks that will remain in place:
