North Hykeham path still leading to nowhere after two years

This story is over

A path in North Hykeham which leads to nowhere is leaving residents confused and a little muddy — two years after builders promised progress.

The foot and cycle path was believed to connect St. Aiden’s Park to the Hykeham station but it has been falling short.

It was laid in 2017 on the old George Fischer Casting football pitch and runs along the train track.

Streetlights were put up on the path last year but the paved section still stops suddenly, forcing residents to walk in the mud.

The path still leads nowhere but streetlights have been installed.

Local resident Lee Baxter has been following the ongoing saga and claims “everyone is denying responsibility.”

He told The Lincolnite: “Another year on and still we have to deal with a muddy path.”

Lee believes that a building company has been locked in dispute with the local council about the path.

“If that’s the case grab the land,” he urged. “I have noticed now that the land owner has planted trees in the space which was supposed to be the path.”

The Lincolnite contacted Persimmon Homes numerous times about the development but was offered no explanation.

North Kesteven District Council have also been contacted.
