This problem has been evident since the new rail bridge was installed. The footpath is in poor condition generally but in a few sections the grass verges have been destroyed by lorries & vans. Here mud flows onto the path making it unpleasant and dangerous to walk on - especially in when wet.

  • Hi, regarding the above pictured footpath please be advised that there's no working Street lights as well. When coming from the station late and it's dark people can't see where there are going. It's is scary, dangerous and its unacceptable. It's been like it for months. Kind Regards

  • During adverse weather, the dried mud pictured becomes thick & impassable. There is no pavement on the other side of the road so pedestrians are forced to walk in a single carriageway 40mph road known for people speeding. Not to mention the fact it is COMPLETELY impassable for anyone with a disability. This has been an issue for OVER A YEAR. What is the point of refurbishing Iver station, when it is inaccessible to anyone in iver to walk to it!?! Another case of SBDC completely disregarding Iver residents in favour of it’s more affluent constituencies.

  • Is there anything going to be done about the street lighting on this stretch of road? Not only the path is flooding when it's raining but the street light are not working and they have not been working for long time. Now when finishing work and walking home is dark. Can't see anything as it's pitch black. Please fix the lights. Many thanks
