    Unfortunately, this issue cannot be dealt with by the county council as the asset concerned is the responsibility of a third party. You will need to report the fault directly to the organisation responsible. Contact details are available at https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/ highways-contacts

  • You have just told me this is not the responsibility of Lincs County Council - how have you come to that conclusion when the pothole (or rather sink hole given the size it is now!) is quite clearly in the main highway?

  • This is an outrageous response from lincs Council.

    Get a grip.

  • As this pothole is between the stop lines at the level crossing it is deemed to be within the railway not the highway. This means Lincolnshire County Council cannot repair this pothole. We have informed Network Rail who are the responsible body.

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility
