  • Thank you for your report. We ask all drivers to consider others and avoid causing issues. Northamptonshire Highways do not put posts or other demarcation on highway verges. However, due to the nature of your report we will investigate this location within the next 10 working days. We are currently experiencing high levels of reports and have crews out dealing with the severe weather. We also ask that residents avoid placing stones or planting on the verge. Whilst we appreciate the good intentions behind residents wishing to plant or place stones in the verge, the issue arises if there is either an accident, or damage to underground services (telecommunications cables etc).We do need to consider the safety of any additions to the verges and so, where we are made aware of any obstructions, we may have to remove them or ask residents to remove them.
