Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 375045.

I understand that Ridgeway has had no road or pavement maintenance in 35 years, admittedly this is not through my own research just the word of long-standing residents. Both my husband and myself whilst walking our dogs in Ridgeway have occasionally tripped and/or twisted ankles and knees, luckily not badly but enough to cause an issue. Due to the increase in traffic in Ridgeway over the years the road itself is crumbling and very uneven in places. Causing issues particularly with cyclists and motorbike/moped users. Ridgeway, Nettleham is an accident waiting.

  • My wife has been very poorly recently and she now needs to use a wheelchair. The pavements on Ridgeway, Brookfield and Willowfield are potentially dangererous to pedestrians and wheelchair users.
