Compacted mud and vegetation on footpath

Hi. This part of the footpath on the edge of the B1205 is just after a stunt bend, exiting the village speed limit. Because of its position cars, vans, and quarry lorries speed up. There is no kerb which means tractors have destroyed the slim grass verge that once separated pedestrians and traffic leaving mud with their deep tyre tracks in it, which are quite deep. Further along the path, where mud on the path has been left, grass is now growing and in some areas, the little asphalt that is left, is now grown over. The current state of the path makes it difficult to use, and could be judged to be dangerous (especially when facing away from the traffic by the bend) as one has to judge whether to try to walk on slippery mud, or the road. I must say that the section which continues past the cottage just before Old Mill Farm heading to Clock House is in great repair, I only wish the Waddingham end was the same.

  • Currently our resources are such that we have to restrict our efforts to dealing with siding of footways that are considered a significant danger or nuisance to users of the highway. In this instance we do not intend to take any immediate action, however we will continue to monitor the site as part of our routine inspections of the highway and will review the situation as necessary. Thank you for reporting this matter.
