Over growing vegetation making it dangerous to walk on pathway

Reported in the Restricted Visibility category anonymously at 18:03, Sun 21 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1703916.

Vegetation is obstructing the path, from both weeds/nettles and overhanging trees. It is very difficult to walk along the A6003 between Cranford road and Warkton Lane due to over grown trees and weeds, can only walk single file. Difficult to pass anyone coming in the other direction. The roadworks are causing more people to use the path to walk children to school and path on over side not open. The narrow path causes people/children to step onto the busy, congested road with speeding cars trying to get through the temporary traffic lights. This need to be made safer ASAP, preferably a long term fix please.

  • You need to get someone up to the road works on Barton road / Cranford road who know what they are doing the one way is not working it has taken my wife 1 hour to do a 2 mile detour ................... It chaos the only way the trafic moves is when the drivers that have been waiting for so long just drive through the red lights ................................... this is not good for the people of Barton Road Poor Management

  • Works to remove vegetation were carried out however access was limited by construction work. This is still on going but recent inspection seems to indicate that new footpath will resolve issues. Once construction is complete we will review situation.
