Corner Drove Road and Dowsdale

Reported via desktop in the Tree roots raising footpath category anonymously at 12:48, Thu 21 September 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 471520.

After the school field walking east towards holbeach drove this pavement is dangerous as the leylandii are restricting the pavement. This means you imbalance trying to avoid the ferns and are forced to use the road as a pedestrian and cannot be seen by oncoming traffic. The Leylandii need to be seriously cutback or preferably completely removed. This has been a recurring issue
