Road subsidence

Reported via desktop in the Road surface issue category anonymously at 11:56, Thursday 4 February 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 387182.

This problem has been reported a number of times over the last few months. I walk along the road every day and it is getting worse. There are two manhole covers nearby and I am of the opinion that the sinking road surface could be caused by a broken drain which is washing the subsoil away under the road and may eventually collapse causing something like a sinkhole.

    Appears to be getting worse and danger to vehicles travelling along Gloucester Road

  • The street lights in the Gloucester Road area seem to be switching on later and later in the mornings. I normally wait until they are ON to take my dog a walk. Surely now the mornings are getting lighter, they should be coming on EARLIER and not LATER ? I know it is to save energy but they seem to be working as if the mornings are getting darker as in Autumn and not lighter as we approach Spring.
