Roadworks - dangerous operation

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 13:44, Saturday 16 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2481807.

The Cityfibre contractors who are currently (at time of writing) working on the brow of the 'Rise' have roadworks almost covering one half of the road, but they have no traffic lights or manual traffic control operational.

This is very dangerous as vehicles cannot easily see over the rise. Surely it is illegal to block off half of a main road without providing some sort of traffic control?!
