Footpath obstructed

Reported via Android in the Pavements/footpaths category by Leigh Trinder at 10:32, Sun 1 March 2020

Sent to West Sussex County Council 3 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 2031765.

The footpath is obstructed by a giant mudhole. The hard gravel surface has eroded, broken up and dissappeared over successive seasons below a thick mud layer. It is very deep and impassable to all but the physically able. The escape route of the grassed zone is also deep mud. The path requires a serious improvement of the drainage and full reinstatement of the gravel path suitable for pedestrians and cyclists. Also wheelchair traffic and those with sticks would be able to use it.

  • The dry weather has opened the path, but wet weather will reverse the situation due to poor drainage. The problem still needs a long term fix.
