Outside Brookside farm, Swineyard Lane
Reported via desktop in the Slurry or Mud on the Highway category anonymously at 08:07, Tuesday 7 March 2023
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4288341.
The owner of Brookside farm is responsible for the state of the highway. They are moving large trucks from the back off the house onto the highway. each truck is dragging loads of mud from behind the house. I have witnessed this on at least two separate occasions. It's been going on for months and and all he's done is put a sign up to say there's a skid risk. I came down the road yesterday and this morning and there was mud all over the road. There's no attempt to clean it up. There will be a serious accident here as it's on the bridge that crosses over the motorway.
