Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 22:10, Tue 30 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 6 minutes later. ref: 1714298.

This road has been in this condition for a couple of months – it is supposed to be regularly inspected. Coming from Milton Malsor there are 6 gullies on this road before the double gulley in the photographs - all of them are blocked. The 3 grips on the opposite side of the road are also completely overgrown. The double gulley was installed following flooding on this road that resulted in a fatality. Both gullies are full of silt.

  • The grips by Manor Farm have still not been cleared - the second picture shows what they look like when cleared - there are 3 or 4 that need clearing.
