There is an ongoing problem with amount of vehicles queing to the Recycling centre on Garrard Way, Kettering NN168TD. I have also contacted the police and have been told this is a council/Highways matter. This needs resolving as a matter of urgency not only to the effect of our Business on Garrard Way, but as a matter of safety while it took 4 minutes to take several photos of the situation i have observed two cars on the wrong side of the road, one of which almost resulted into a road traffic accident.

This has been since the recycling centre has re-opened after the closure due to covid but has long been a problem since there opening hours where reduced to 5 days a week opening.
