Deep ruts in soft highway verge caused by vehicles

Reported in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 17:24, Wednesday 26 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 2024407.

When reported previously, you stated that: "There are currently no defects that meet NCC investigatory levels for repair." There is a section on the FixmyStreet list specifically for this problem. I cannot see how this does not fall into that category and therefore requires being put right. We will soon be commencing the verge grass cutting which our Parish Council pays for as the NCC provision is so poor. We do not have the capabilities to fix this ourselves as it is so close to the carriageway and would not be safe for us to do. Please will you attend to repair the damage to our highway verge
