Contractors have damaged driveway

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 08:47, Tue 31 March 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2076785.

Last year the council repaired (re-tarmacked) the driveway to my property 9 Salford Close, Welford, NN6 6JJ (the section that crosses the pathway. Local contractors, installing superfast fibre cables, have dug sections of the repaired driveway up and re-tarmacked them. They have not sealed the joints where their tarmac meets yours. I believe this will eventually cause the tarmac to lift during any spells of freezing weather. You also repaired my neighbour's drive (no 8) at the same time. The fibre cable cable also cut through his drive but has sealed the joints. Can you get these contractors to come back and seal the joints on my drive as well.
