'Safer route to school' impeded by vegetation

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 11:48, Tue 1 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2272902.

This section of Raunds Road is a safer route to school since the school buses were removed. The full width of the path is not available for use due to overgrowth of vegetation. Apart from the issue of students potentially stepping in the road to get round, the overgrowth will impede lighting as the nights draw in and from a mitigation of bullying perspective, the route should not be restricted.
