Footway is covered with mud

Reported via mobile in the Cleaning/Sweeping category anonymously at 16:20, Tue 4 April 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 2 weeks, 22 hours, 57 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4398350.

The footway on the side opposite Chalfont Heights is lost underneath mud. This is slippery and difficult to navigate in wet weather. In dry weather it hardens with raised tyre tracks and footprints that cause an uneven surface which is also difficult to negotiate, especially if you are unsteady on your feet. The whole length of this footway on this side of the A404 from Little Chalfont to Amersham Common is now very narrow and it could be greatly improved by siding out and sweeping. There is a sapling tree growing up by a lamppost near the Finch Lane junction. If this is not removed it will soon become large enough to force pedestrians to walk on the A404. There are also a number of brambles that grow over the footway from this time of year onwards that are a trip hazard when they are low, but also they grow across at face height and can cause scratches. This footway is well used by pedestrians, including those students walking to Dr Challoners High School and Amersham School.
