Shared use path adjacent to carpark overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Weeds on the highway category anonymously at 17:07, Wednesday 21 June 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 462926.

Whilst the cycle path has been regularly maintained, this part has been neglected. This part of the path is badly overgrown, no room for a pedestrian let alone a bicycle, escape points into carpark also overgrown, there is also too much broken glass on the gravel at east end of carpark to make use as an alternative route. As well cutting back to widen the path, the whole hedge line also needs lowering so you have visibility of vehicles/pedestrians/bicycles entering into the car park area, it’s currently an accident waiting to happen.

  • I now cannot cycle down this and have to cycle on the glass strewn cinder car park risking my bike and my life. This urgently needs attention

  • This appears to be the location of three fire assembly points marked for the adjacent buildings, only noticed the signs today covered by undergrowth. These are now pretty inaccessible and definitely not visible, I hope those responsible have an updated fire plan !

  • You will see from these 2 photos that this access point for the byway is now impassable. I rode down this morning to be confronted by brambles scratching my legs (I was in shorts) and hindering my cycle. So I guess since this was first reported in June there has been significant growth. I think the byway is now difficult for pedestrians as well.

  • The verges of cycle path has been cut back but this section has been left untouched again. I cannot believe a contractor has been assigned and this issue not resolved. Is it not part of this contract !!

    Surely this should be prioritised due to the fact NHS Healthcare Fire Assembly Points also being obstructed by overgrown vegitation.

    This has been left far too long, getting a bit sick of the thorn cuts, nettle rash and snaggging on my waterproof jacket.

  • WHY has this not been resolved. You stated that you were referring it to City of Lincoln. Still no action. The path is dangerous and unusable. Someone is going to have a serious accident and you ARE AWARE of this issue and have been for some time now. You are RESPONSIBLE for this and need to get it resolved. This is outrageous, please advise how this can be escalated.
