Footpath blocked by contractors

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 17:55, Wed 4 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1756192.

The contractors for Gigaclear are not considering pedestrians at all when working. Chapel St towards Hautboy Lane, pavement closed, directed to opposite side which is also blocked today forcing people on to the road. Wheelchair/buggy users are unable to use any of the temporary paths in Chapel St due to lack of width. I have spoken to contractors on 3 occasions and whilst they widen the paths when I am using it, they then reinstate with same problem.

  • Apologies, the red marker is showing as by the new development. My explanation shows it is the Little Green end of Chapel st where the current problem lies.
