  • We have met with the property owner on site who has agreed to ensure the widened section of the new driveway is not used by his tenants. This will ensure that vehicles can only cross the highway footway over the dropped kerbs which is the legal crossing. Whilst Lincolnshire County Council recognises the difficulties the property owner is having with his contractor, it has been decided that no action will be taken in regard to the temporary repairs carried out in the highway by said contractor. Should the patches fail in the future Lincolnshire County Council may carry out further repairs to make these more permanent. No further action is planned at this time. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
