Cycle lane obstructed

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Craig Blacha at 01:17, Thursday 15 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5578986.

The red line indicates where a cycle lane should be.

As previously stated it is required under the Highways Act that the local authority ie: NNC ensure that the free passage of the public highway is cleared from obstructions.

This cycle path is obstructed, previous report closed and advised that would be cleared in 6 months. This is not an acceptable time frame as you have a statutory obligation to ensure that visually impaired persons are able to safely walk along this shared footpath without falling into a bramble bush.

I look forward to your prompt reassessment of this matter - if there isn’t a reasonable outcome to this report I will again escalate my response.
