Extremely Dangerous Kerb - Tree ripping up the pavement and Kerb - abandoned Highway Barriers signs

Reported via desktop in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category by Trish Mann at 12:57, Saturday 10 February 2024

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5558197.

An accident report was made after numerous safety issues regarding the dangerous uplifting of the public highway and foot path as a result of the tree growing pulling up the tarmac and slabs - many attempts to patch this up over the years with small areas re slabbed / tarmacked. This not only is not working but the tree continues to grow and destroy the pathway and road. This is an area with many elderly retired residents who already struggle with poor mobility, this is very dangerous and will ultimately result in something far worse happening if the tree is not removed.
