Risk of collapse of the roadway and of serious injury.

Reported in the Roads/highways category by Cllr Henry Charles Hodson at 16:54, Wed 7 February 2018

Sent to Cornwall Council less than a minute later

The roadway (at the point where it runs NW to SE alongside the stream) has been long been compromised by undermining by the stream, certainly ever since I moved to the area more than three years ago. Recent heavy rainfall has exacerbated the problem to the point where the road surface is overhanging thin air in at least one place. The risk is not just of the sudden collapse of parts of the roadway but also of serious injury to occupants of any vehicle whose weight might trigger such a collapse.

  • Since I reported this problem there have been severe frost and heavy rainfall, both of which will only increase the danger of collapse.
