Verge subsidence covering pavement

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 21:08, Friday 12 March 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Due to recent rain and tractor(s) mounting the grass verge, there has been a large subsidence and the pavement before the entrance to the farm - on the left side of the road as you approach the roundabout - is now 75 per cent covered in thick mud (at least 10cm deep). Pedestrians can not walk on the path any more and must step out into the busy road. This problem has been present for three weeks (since mid-February 2021)

  • Three weeks and no update? Mud still on the pavement, which has now hardened and difficult to walk on if a person is unstable. Other option is to walk into the busy road!!!

  • Two months since originally reported and still this hasn't been sorted. The mud/mess on the pavement still presents a risk to pedestrians, who have to walk in the (national speed limit) road to avoid. Rather than reply with the stock, copy-and-paste responses, you tell us when this will be resolved, or do you not care about our safety?
