Verges dug up by Gigaclear & not reinstated

Reported in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 21:52, Monday 8 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1689229.

I have been in contact with Gigaclear since beginning of June to recitify damaged copping stones and the verges after they installed Fibre Optic casing along Ashby Road. They have promised to rectify this but todate have done nothing besides scatter a bit of grass seed around and promise to return to replace broken copping stones and make good the verges outside most houses on the road. They have said you will either make them re instate the area or will reinstate it yourselves and charge them. I would be obliged if you can bring pressure to bear to get this work done. We have pride in our street and at the moment a majority of house frontages are a mess.
