Human waste in underpass.

Reported via desktop in the Flooded underpass category by Georgina Flack at 11:55, Tue 1 November 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3929453.

Maskew Avenue West and Maskew Avenue East underpasses have been used as public toilets. There is a strong smell of human urine and faeces in these underpasses. Both have lots of other rubbish on the ground, and I have witnessed a lot of drug dealing and drug taking in these underpasses. I have reported the illegal activities to the police, but, apart from using the underpasses as drug dens, these criminals leave a lot of mess and use the underpasses as semi-open toilets, I have, on occasion, witnessed this when I have been cycling through. This morning the whole of the cycleway along Bourges Boulevard between Rhubarb Bridge and Bright Street was a filthy mess with flooding, human waste and a lot of fly tipping. It is just so revolting cyclists will be forced to take unnecessary risks as the cycle way is too disgusting to use.
