Footpath Impassable. Pedestrians having to walk in the road.

Reported in the Flooding category anonymously at 18:05, Monday 24 February 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 367933.

Footpath has been damaged by builders constructing new property. Footpath completely impassable after rain as the section shown in the photo is flooded. The only way past this obstacle course is to walk in the road. Verge looks like something from the Somme and cannot be walked on. Then there is the builders toilet and a skip. This might make a nice water feature for the future owners of this brand new house. But seeing as it is the builder that has caused this hitherto unknown flooding problem I hope to see that Highways point out their responsibility to repair this whole section of footpath to the builder.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because when we inspected the footpath had recently been reconstructed and the verges had been tidied up. We have assessed the site in accordance with our Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan and it does not require urgent action. We will continue to monitor this location as part of our routine inspection schedule. If the fault deteriorates significantly please report this again to us. Thank you for reporting this matter.
