Cattle grid repairs insufficient

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 09:03, Tue 5 April 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3438088.

This cattle grid on running hill has been broken for quite some time now, reported originally in July 2021 from what I can see. There are bars missing that have been (I assume) temporarily repaired with sandbags in the gaps.

We believe this repair is insufficient and potentially dangerous as it impairs its function to separate livestock from the A31. Please could this be rectified as soon as possible before a serious accident occurs. A fellow parishioner has reported this via South Today and other channels after feeling the response he received was not sufficient

Many Thanks Minstead Parish Council

  • The newly installed cattle grid off the A31 to Minstead has a significant drop between the grid and the road surface. This has the potential to damage vehicles !

  • Cllr Bill ANDREWS, Chairman Minstead PC As reported above there is a considerable stepup between the grid bars and roadway level that is hazardous to wheeled vehicles. The roadways have been left in an unholy mess with earth & gravel strewn about.
