Urgent repair to deep large pothole with sharp edge hazardous for walkers

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 00:51, Sun 9 January 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 413738.

URGENT attention sort the total length of East Field Lane high profile due to pedestrian walkers accident to be addressed by Highways department LN11 8TD Pothole Injury incident 25.12.21 - Lincoln County Council Pot Hole incident of tripping, falling flat on road during Christmas day walk from home address Field View East Field Lane walking down lane bending left inot East Field Lane, where at middle section many pot holes left and right of lane and some deep with sharp edges. The weather was Ok for walking, even bright sun light which hazardous often blinded one’s eyes. This large deep risky pot hole tempts accidents often full of water and often difficult to avoid when pedestrians spontaneously use middle and sides of lane due to sharing with traffic other walkers. This lane then links left to Middlesykes Lane, or later links to North Gate Lane, then linking to main village Tinkle Street creating a round the block local well being walk at site of incident. These lanes are used by local residents for walks, dog walking and our homes with drive access front onto these narrow lanes with no pathways. The neglect of East Field Lane has been wanting for some time and the whole lane needs risk and hazard inspection. The lane is well used by domestic, trade service van even with trailers and often large vehicles, even tractors farm related vehicles. The residential properties house two cars plus per household and have a residential value that should be acknowledged as high rather than low and are well cared for properties or ready for enhancement, current house values should be rewarded with a decent standard or our lanes, East Field Lane in total in all parts need integrated care and attention, patching or first aiding edges and pot holes is even wanting and exposing car tryers, driving safety and pedestrian safety being high risk. Why such obvious neglect over my own relocation of history being 3 years and nothing seen in progress of repair.
