Hole in the footpath outside the Skateboard Park

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 22:31, Mon 2 July 2018

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 1354396.

In order to enter or exit from Woody Heights Skateboard Park you have to cross the non tarmac pavement/cycle path. Many of the youngsters exit on their bicycles. Because of the safety barriers they have to swerve right and then left before exiting on to the main road. Because the pavement consists only of hardcore it gets churned up and worn away and gradually a hole is formed. The kerbstone then becomes a potential trip hazard for people exiting Woody Heights either walking, running and even on their bikes. There is a risk not only they may be injured by a fall but also they could fall in front of traffic coming down Linchfield Road, especially those exiting on their bikes. So why don’t you extend the existing tarmac pavement a further 3 metres so that it passes in front of the entrance/exit to Woody Heights and eliminates this risk. When you go down and check it you will probably think the hole is not very deep. This is because every year those of us who organise the Deeping Road Race and Fun Run add hardcore to the hole and tamp it down thus stopping the runners tripping over when they exit the playing fields go through Woody Heights and on to the road. Whilst we do our best we are not professionals so it would be much better if your professional team did it. This was first discussed with you in 2017 so hopefully you will get this done, and definitely before May 2019.

  • Because the problem has not been fixed the end of the tarmac pavement is starting to crack and drop down so what was a small job could soon become much bigger.

  • The work has not been done and the situation is getting worse because the road next to the kerb has dropped. So when people run out there is even more chance of them falling over.
