Tarmac after recent repair breaking up and dent

Reported in the Public footpath or cyclepath category anonymously at 16:57, Wed 8 July 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2191785.

1. Following a recent repair to the footpath in front of my property it is breaking/ crumbling and sinking. as it is on an incline it causes as a significant trip hazard. 2. My next issue is the state of this footpath in general. it is very uneven and in great need of repair this is not helped by contract vehicles using it frequently. it floods completely leaving it nowhere for the residents/pedestrians to walk without waterproof footwear. 3. Over the last 2 days there has been work carried out by CityFibre laying cabling. The footpath now has an unreasonable amount of sand and fuel spillages and has several more fractures on the already suffering footpath. please issue a cleaner to wash/ clean the path where these workmen have left this mess. i may also add not only are our windows covered in the dust created from their work but the debris is walking into peoples houses. The work may have been necessary but the muck and mess and spillages are not acceptable. I have concerns over safety of this path in its current state. where the fuel is spilled in different places along the path it is rainbow colored.
