A BRADLEY footpath which has fallen into disrepair is to be repaired.
Local residents complained the state of the path meant elderly people had to make a long detour.
Their concerns were taken up by community worker Mr Manjit Singh, pictured, who has complained to Kirklees Council on behalf of the residents of Upper and Lower Quarry Roads.
Now a council spokesman has said they were aware of the problems and work was planned.
The steep path links the two roads, but after many years of neglect, it became slippery and dangerous to use.
Heavy rain has recently caused silt and debris to be washed down the path.
Mr Singh, who stood as the Lib Dem candidate for Ashbrow ward in May, said: “A number of people had complained about the footpath. It was well-used as a short cut”.
A Kirklees Council spokesman said: “This footpath was inspected recently and resurfacing work, to provide a better surface for people using the route is due to take place this month.
“There is also a lamp-post in the area which was damaged earlier this month and is scheduled for repair soon.
“Anyone who wishes to report a problem can do so via the council website or by calling 0800 731 8765.”
