Footpath is very narrow

Reported via mobile in the Footway category anonymously at 11:08, Friday 7 October 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3874441.

The verges have encroached onto the footpath along a 300m stretch. In places less than 0.5m wide. (see photos). It's impossible for two people to pass without one standing in the hedge or roadway and there's not enough room for a pushchair or wheelchair. First reported to Cheshire East over a year ago.

Updates

  • 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.

  • We have assessed the issue and added it to our improvement programme for repair over the longer term. This means we are unlikely to do any improvement work here during the current financial year. Our programmes sometimes change if more funding becomes available. You should check our website for any updates. You can find details of the work planned for this location and where it currently sits on the programme through our website: https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ road-repair-and-improvement-programme-2021-2022/ road-repair-and-improvement-programme-2021-2022.aspx
