IPDATE Aug 2020 The road has been resurfaced but not the footway despite the desperate need. Carrington near Manchester.The hedges are not cut back sufficiently. Compare the path width and surface to #72079 on Flixton Road nearby. This path is very narrow and mostly close t the edge of the road. There is no path on the other side of the road.

The views 1 to 6 are successive views travelling West toward Carrington:
1 View looking W from the traffic light junction with the NCN 62 : The original pavement width is completely blocked forcing people onto the verge
2 View looking W The verge is muddy when wet forcing people even closer to the road and the less muddy kerb. This is a 40 mph road !

3 View looking W: Over time the verge has become the beaten path (maintenance crews ignoring a significant path width furthest away from the road) the real path has been neglected this is a vicious circle forcing people ever closer to the road and away from the creeping vegetation . This is a 40 mph road ! The view of oncoming traffic is typical of the volume of trucks along here.

4 View looking W: The path is well away from the road where people are allowed walk there through sections that are extra wide. Like the rest of the route the path is well worn and very narrow creating a deep and uncomfortable path especially in the wet. Notice (just about) the warning sign (obscured by low hanging branches).

5 View looking W: Even tarmac paths are allowed to deteriorate and the width decrease.

6 View looking W: Back to the none tarmac hard surface and the path is again very narrow and worn.

7. View looking W: Even speed limit order signs are allowed to disappear behind the creeping vegetation.

8. View looking W: Very scary all the way along as trucks are regular at most times , buses less so some HGV and bus drivers appear to take pleasure in going close to the kerb when they see pedestrians or cyclists.
