Badly overgrown plants obstructing path

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:02, Fri 23 September 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3844840.

In a number of places between the Windsor Road junction and the transport museum yard there are a number of badly overgrown plants/hedges/trees which are obstructing the pathway. As this is also part of the cycle way it's making it very dangerous and also obstructing the view further along the path, not allowing for people to be aware of their surroundings.

  • Still outstanding to be addressed. They plants are getting worse, especially next to the crossing and it's been nearly 6 months.
