Unusable and Unsafe Footpath

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 15:02, Friday 14 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1661027.

The footpath along Station road, Finedon towards the Junction of Finedon Station Road and Finedon Road, Burton Latimer is an absolute disgrace. The footpath is not only uneven in most places but is totally overgrown with vegetation that the footpath itself can barely be seen. The footpath runs alongside a very busy stretch of road with cars travelling up to 60mph, pedestrians are unable to use this footpath and are forced to walk in the road, the carriageway is only just wide enough for two cars to pass one another, but add pedestrians, dog walkers and children cycling then an accident is sure to happen sooner rather than later. This stretch of path has been totally neglected over the years even though it is used every day by local residents in Finedon and Burton Latimer, it is totally unsafe and unfit for use.
