Re siting of grit bin for the Winter .Lancaster Way .

Reported in the Grit Bin - damaged/replacement category anonymously at 11:33, Sat 2 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 2 minutes later. ref: 1828712.

Since the start of the Barry Howard development, the grit bin has been moved to the top of the hill on Lancaster Way . Each year the cars \ vans get stuck and abandoned at the entrance to Lancaster Way in the snow and ice . As a large van driver , if you do not get a clear run up the hill it adds to further carnage at the bottom. I believe that there are going to be some planned roadworks soon also which will compound the issue and affect the Towcester Rd. Can the grit bin please be resited at the bottom of the hill on the opposite side ( by the green telecoms boxes ) where it is needed most? Many thanks .
