Subsidence on the pathway and slipway between my property boundary and the pathway .

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 07:51, Wed 20 September 2017

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 1111250.

This problem was reported in April as part of a problem with the adjoining Pike Drain bridge . The bridge has slipped off it's base , a problem I believe to have been created by subsidence of the underlying cavity above the aforesaid drain . Several weeks after a visit from a member of the bridge maintenance team excess foliage was removed and the visible crack at the base was pointed . Nothing further has been heard , in spite of a reminder . The pathway represents a danger to pedestrians and the many cyclists who use the path . I will not repeat myself further , you hold all the details or should do . With Winter approaching the potential hazards increase . The hump at the foot of the splay / junction with my driveway is an additional hazard as it is arguably a trip hazard . Six months have passed and no progress .

  • Six months since I first reported this . No communication on this , other than initial visit to look at bridge and point it . Potential death trap on the sunken path . Pedestrians sidestep the large puddle that fills the path to it's full extent , very close to the path edge . It would be easy to overbalance and fall into the road . In frosty or freezing weather a puddle becomes ice or slush . This presents a danger to both pedestrians and the cyclists who use this stretch of path . Cyclists continue to be a nuisance at this spot . I note that signs have been erected ( recently ? ) to advise cyclists that the cycle line is " with the traffic flow only " . I only noticed the signs whilst walking back home from " The Forum " . I doubt that cyclists have even spotted it ( attached to a lamp post on the path side ) . Still no signs to say " cycling on the path prohibited " and associated penalty warning . Precarious spot for both cyclists and pedestrians as in addition to matters already specified cyclists whizz in and out of Tritton Road into a blind spot .
