Pedestrian track alongside A40 Oxford Road between Denham and Gerrards Cross
Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 14:21, Monday 22 May 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4582979.
This track is the only means for pedestrians to walk from Denham to Gerrards Cross as there is only an intermittent pavement at Tatling End and Red Hill. The track is very poorly maintained and is now overgrown with dangerous hogweed. The track is now almost completely obscured by uncontrolled overgrowth and is becoming completely impassable in places. (see pictures) The vegetation needs cutting back extensively, track needs clearing and a new surface needs to be laid to create a usable footpath.
This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding the footpath/pavement/cyclepath.
They will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and if required arrange to resolve the issue.
