  • The path is getting worse and has become very unsafe. In fact one of our employees (we have 2 who are totally blind and use this path to walk to the office from the bus stop) actually fell over today because they slipped on this part of the pathway. Can you please re-inspect this as it is becoming unusable and if our employee suffers another injury we will be forced to take action against you as we have repeatedly advised you of this hazzard.

  • As you can see from the attached photo's the pathway is getting worse and there is further damage all the way along. Our blind employee is finding it almost impossible to navigate along this pathway now and this is his only route from the bus stop to our office. THIS REQUIRES IMMEDIATE ATTENTION BEFORE HE FALLS AND CAUSES SERIOUS HARM TO HIMSELF RESULTING IN CIVIL ACTION

  • The road past the Recycling tip at Northampton Road Rushden is blocked by traffic waiting next to 3 NO QUEUEING signs back to Waitrose roundabout. There is an operative at the end of the queue doing nothing and at least 2 at the gate the same. Some cars are then passing this queue, which is obviously risky and potential for accidents, rather than wait ages in the queue to get past. This is an ongoing problem made worse by the current situation and reduced opening hours.
