  • This has got worse since first reported two weeks ago and it is a hazard for cyclists. The growth of nettles by the side of the path in places has narrowed the usable area of pavement and increased the risk of accidents for both pedestrians and cyclists.

  • It is high time this hazard is attended to. There is no need to send 2 people from Lincoln to look at road chips on the pavement. Just send a pavement sweeper and get the job done. Or ask SKDC to do it.

  • I do not understand why after two months of investigation you have not yet taken any action to resolve this problem. The loose chippings on the pavement continue to be a hazard and this matter needs to be addressed.

  • It is obvious LCC have absolutely no intention of doing anything about the footpath.It is still covered in gravel chippings and is a hazard for pedestrians and cyclists,it simply needs sweeping. This fix my street website is a waste of time,a glance through many reports show that LCC doesn't take any action over the majority of them.

  • I agree with the comments made by the previous writer. This website is obviously just a talking shop" get it off your chest and you'll feel better". What an insult! A simple matter of finishing a job properly has not been attended to. The Council are clearly waiting for a cyclist to slip on the chippings and fall into the path of a vehicle speeding along the A607. Then it will be too late for some unfortunate person like my daughter who cycles to work on the path every day.
