The council has a duty of care to maintain the safety and usability of footpaths that are kept at public expense, and must take all reasonable measures to prevent harm to footpath users. Given recent incidents in the news about violence towards women, this footpath is not safe for people who are walking out alone when its dark - this could be as early as 5pm in winter and affects commuters walking from Leatherhead train station). It is not acceptable that people are having to run through the footpath to get through it quickly or to use their own personal devices to provide adequate lighting to walk through.
