Closed pavement on B1173

This is an on going problem that needs a resolution! This is a danger to life. There are people who live in the local community, particularly Fen End Lane who do not own a vehicle and have no other option but to use this route regularly. Not only are they risking their own and their children’s lives this is also a risk to the road users. For example, when a pedestrian is walking along the road, as you are suggesting they do, once in the road the passing vehicles, often lorries have to swerve to the other side of the road to leave room. This is on a bend where cars are travelling at speeds of around 60mph from the opposite direction. I hope you can understand that this is not very safe. I request that you provide a detailed response as to the plan for this pavement before you are forced to do so due to a serious incident caused by this issue. I have read previous reports that this would cost in the region of £250k to repair, which I am sure some methods of repair may cost. Surely there are other solutions that would be a simpler and cheaper option which I would be happy to discuss with you as I have some suggestions.
