Uneven path

Reported via desktop in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 17:35, Mon 28 November 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4000598.

I reported the path needing repair in May ref number 3491299. Well it has been repaired, but it is worse than before. It took so long the yellow lines put down were not noticed and a very bad repair was done, it looks more like a kids skate park than a footpath. I walk up there every day and am in fear of tripping up. I am 79 and the last thing I want is to fall. This is my daily walk with my dog and as I live at number 9 this is the way I go

  • The path is no better than it was this time last year. It has been “repaired” twice but is no different, a few of the holes have been filled in but not all of them, and it is still very uneven to walk on especially on the dark nights

  • It’s still very uneven, people trip every day, as it is a very busy path to get over to the factories, I think it should be in a much more even state than it is. I have helped a few people that have fallen over as I walk this path every day myself and live on the corner.

  • They did attempt to repair the path, but it’s more uneven now because it was such a rubbish job done
