On blind bend, outside edge of bend

Reported via mobile in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 10:22, Tue 13 June 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 462025.

At side of road the ground falls away to very deep drop. When two cars meet at blind bend, not possible for the one travelling on inside to pull tighter so if car on outside going uphill pulls left it will drop off the road and ground out. This happened recently. Corner is dangerous blind bend. Potentially for serious damage to vehicles or injury of not able to move out of way

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because an officer has attended the site and although there is some edge overrun it does not encroach the carriageway enough to meet the intervention level. We identified there is on this corner a layby for cars to park to let other vehicles through. However, we will keep monitoring this particular area because we are monitoring the nearby subsidence and cracking further up the road which we have requested works to be done by the asset team. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • There is a lay-by, however the drop from the carriage way onto this area is large enough that a car will ground trying to pull across into it. This was what happened when I was driving the road, a car coming uphill pulled over and the bottom of their car grounded. Ana tea needs filling to prevent damage to vehicles
