Footpath around the tree outside Tongs of Spilsby
Reported via desktop in the Trip hazard/uneven surface category anonymously at 10:38, Tue 14 November 2023
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 478839.
Many bricks are being lifted by the roots of the tree spreading underneath the pavement, causing an uneven pavement which several people have tripped on, some needing emergency services to assist their recovery. As the roots grow the problem becomes worse and the general public do not always see the uneven surface, hence the falls.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with a trip hazard or uneven surface. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about pavement maintenance on our website
