Slippery road surface

Reported via desktop in the Road surface issue category anonymously at 13:09, Friday 21 May 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 397082.

The surface on the entire stretch of this road is unsafe for horses to use. The surface is extremely well worn, and as it is so smooth and shiny the horses cannot keep their footing, making it extremely dangerous to ride on. This road has several equestrian facilities on it, and the village is densely populated with horses, we don't have many places to ride off the road, so keeping the roads safe is necessary.
