Footpath width inadequate

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 12:50, Friday 23 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2354197.

As a grandparent collecting children from school I would like to bring to your attention the footpath width between Cranford Chase and traffic lights at the corner of Barton Road as inadequate for walking young children back and forth to Barton Seagrave and Haycross Primary schools, going in opposite directions, often with parents with pushchairs and very young children, having to step out into the road to pass each other. There is no alternative pathway on most of the other side of the road, and now the daylight hours are shorter, this will increase the danger to pedestrians. As more houses are being occupied in the new development this danger will only increase.
