Those people who have braved the muddy bog that is the public footpath near to Green Lane, know that the newly replaced wooden bridge can become Very Slippery during wet weather and requires some degree of caution whilst crossing it.
Cheshire East was recently approached, following the suggestion from several people, for permission to staple some small gauge wire netting to help rectify the slippery surface -- something that is often seen by walkers all over the country.
However, CEC's Public Rights of Way group duly informed Audlem PC that no form of wire netting can be attached – nor anything else physical. The reason?? You'll never guess '''Elf & Safety" of course!!
Sand, however, can be used.
So, there is now a bucket of coarse sand that can be sprinkled as and when, so please help yourselves. And, if you notice that it's running low, please let a member of the field working group know. It does seem to help, so hopefully there'll be no accidents.
