Footway standing water & sludge.

Reported via desktop in the Trip hazard/uneven surface category anonymously at 09:27, Fri 5 November 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 408901.

OS Grid Reference TF 43038 51271

Footway surface depression, no longer slopes to roadway for drainage. Water and spray from roadway traffic pooling, leaving water and sludge too deep and slippery for pedestrians, now a serious safety hazard.

Action required – build up and re-contour footway surface to drain over kerbstones into roadway edge gutter. Note for inspection – do not view site on a dry day, measurable rainfall within 12hours of 5+mm (a misguided practice on other faults).

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. Upon assessment of the photos provided, they show a relatively small volume of water standing on the road, to a degree that is not causing a safety issue or putting properties at risk. Although it must be inconvenient, it would be difficult to justify the resource required to carry out repairs here and the team will monitor as part of its routine maintenance programme. Thank you for reporting this matter.
