London road north, towards the four houses (wayside, Cranford, Bentlea)

Reported via mobile in the Footway category anonymously at 14:52, Mon 6 March 2023

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4286860.

The footpath has been closed since Jan 29th following a lorry who came off the road. We currently can’t cross the road to walk down the other side due to the bend in the road and being unable to see round this. There are speeding cars down this road and it’s posing a serious risk to life having to cross the road. I have two young children under 5 and I can’t risk walking across the road when I’m unable to see round the bend. Please can someone let me know when this footpath is being fixed. I contacted the highways on the 29th January and so far nothing has been done to fix the issue. I’ve left a message for someone to call me back about this. I also contacted you to tell you that the street lamp directly outside our a house isn’t working. As I mentioned we live on a major road heading into and out of Poynton and visibility round this bend is currently really poor at night due to the light being out. Can someone call me about this. I tried getting through to someone today but have been on hold for ages and so have left a message for someone to call me back. Thanks
