Frith Hill, HP16 9QF

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 21:26, Tuesday 27 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Foot path from the top of Frith Hill to HP16 9QE is overgrown and unsafe. The path has lost half its width with overgrown, unmaintained vegetation. I walk my children down to school daily and they are forced to walk on the edge of the path, super close to the road as it’s so narrow at points. This is so unsafe that I now walk in the road to protect them from being hit by cars wing mirrors as they pass us. If the overgrown vegetation is cut back and cleared, the path would be double its size making our walk to school safer. I am very concerned that there will be a terrible and perhaps fatal accident between a car and pedestrian along this section of road in the near future.
