Shrubbery encroaching pavement, restricting pavement width.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 11:53, Fri 28 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1677473.

The encroaching vegetation is causing a hazard to pedestrians esp. children. as the pavement is much reduced in width here because of it. People are forced to step out into the road when faced with others walking towards them. In fact, the vegetation all along from the backwater channel bridge to where the track goes down into the country park, needs cutting and scraping back as a matter of urgency, to restore the pavement's full width, for safe use.
