Works in road. No taper/warning lights in the dark/narrow pass through

Reported via mobile in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 23:22, Wed 16 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2435657.

The works which are being carried out in the road (Midland Road, next to two new builds in progress off of the Silverfields estate) are not lit up for night traffic. The works have a barrier but no taper/cones in place and no orange lighting as required. The works encroach on the other side of the road too leaving a narrow gap to pass through. I noticed this tonight for the first time. Concern that no lighting/signage/warning may cause potential RTC/damage to verges/property/injury to persons.
