Hibel Road Public Footbridge Steps by 63 Brock Street, SK10 1DH

Hibel Road public footbridge steps on the side of 63 Brock Street are littered with catkins, these have fallen from the overhanging branches of a tree located within the garden of number 63. I had to move the catkins to the side of the steps to avoid slipping as it had rained overnight and during the day. Since the footbridge is used regularly by pedestrians the littered catkins are causing a hazardous and safety issue. I understand it is the responsibility of the homeowner/tenants to ensure public rights of way are kept clear and not obstructed. Please can this be looked into?
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.

The issue is not the responsibility of the Highways Department, so it has been forwarded to our colleagues in another team to assess. They will be in touch with you shortly to provide you with an update on the status of your report.
