Footpath from Barrington Gate to Farrow Avenue.

Reported via mobile in the Trip hazard/uneven surface category anonymously at 21:47, Monday 20 November 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 479656.

Recently resurfaced public footpath has been dug up by contractors. Been roughly back filled. Dangerous as deep ruts now covered with leaves. The once smooth surface is now rutted , uneven and muddy. This footpath is used by many people. Absolutely disgraceful the way it has been left. Contractors needed to remedy their poor workmanship asap.

  • Was a beautiful newly laid footpath from Farrow Ave to Barrington Gate. It must of cost the council thousands of pounds but once the electricity board dug it up it is now a mess. The trench has dropped leaving a dangerous rut and pot holes everywhere. The footpath was laid in April and only lasted 6months. The video supplied is as it was before they dug it up
