Oil on pavement possibly from pavement patching following

Reported in the Obstruction on pavement/verge category anonymously at 10:20, Tuesday 14 April 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 370527.

Ref 4128548

This reported last year and following numerous phone calls and emails a member of highways came to investigate. Your original response was oil leaking from a car but following on site inspection it was agreed this was not the case. The lady took a sample of this oil and told me that it would take a while for the sample to be analysed and would we continue covering this oil with sand which we have been doing. I was surprised to see the complaint had been closed without informing me. This is still an issue and I would like an update on the cause and how this will be managed as this oil is being transferred to my property on shoes and car tyres and also is a hazzard to pavement users. Thank you
