Large vehicles sent via Nene Way by satnav, people in road.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 19:34, Thursday 2 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2183292.

Large delivery vehicles trying to access for example, Lime Rd ( or St) or Meeting Lane - no access via Nene View, very difficult to turn round, saw a mini and a wall just missed today. I was out of house most of day but saw 3 incidents! Difficult for them to reverse. Pedestrians are often in road as cars have to park on pavement, someone or something will be hurt or damaged. You suggested we contact satnav companies - my neighbour had done so with no response. I will try. You say there is nowhere for warning sign - there is on walls along Church Street or where steps in front of Church are - that would be perfect for a warning sign for no access to any other road and warn that people may be walking in road. Signs please.

  • Thank you for contacting us about this, it is good to know sat nav companies have been contacted, and it would be worth keep reporting issues to them rather than just once. We cannot put signs on private walls, they are not part of the highway. However following the first report it has been noted that the recent development removed the ‘No through road’ sign, and arrangements are being made to replace this sign so drivers are aware they cannot get through to other streets via this route.

  • Great to have a positive response from the council although not auctioned yet. We trust it will be.
