Footpath/cyclepath strewn with rubble, wood and skateboarders

I use the new M2 cycle lane route daily, often twice daily, but the intrusion and danger caused by the increase in skateboarders is getting too much. The numbers of people using the footpath/cyclepath as a skatepark, dragging pieces of wood, concrete and other dangerous objects on to the path is getting out of control. I've narrowly avoided large lumps of concrete quite a few times this year, and I'm forced to make a complaint as I just narrowly avoided colliding with a skateboarder trying to jump over a large piece of wood, who tripped and fell straight into my path as I was coming the other way. I had to brake hard to stop from hitting him, only to be called 'a c*nt' for making the effort. I didn't even say anything to him. Can something be done about this before the whole pathway becomes unusable for anyone other than skateboarders, or worse, a serious accident/incident occurs?
