The footpath pavement is obscured with mud wtc

Reported via mobile in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 13:17, Monday 12 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5566041.

The paved footpath alongside the road is badly covered in mud and vegetation along its length - this is also the only safe walking route. It is impassable by wheelchair or pram and very difficult for pedestrians. It looks as if cable or pipe laying v work Ali v the verge has resulted in soil from the trench being dumped along the footpath for a mile. Forcing pedestrians to walk on the road which is 60mph speed limit. Highly dangerous, neglected and resulting in no safe route.

  • Overgrown vegetation across the majority of the footpath, the footpath is becoming impassable for members of the public and is the main access route for the public to use.
