Snow and ice on hill

Reported via desktop in the Icy Road category anonymously at 06:08, Monday 25 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2499323.

The section of Muirfield road from nos. 10 to 20 steeply downhill then up the other side. There was a grit bin on this hill but it has been removed. At present, there is snow and ice making it very dangerous. The road has not been gritted by the council. Traffic coming from either end tends to see the hill and increase speed to get up the other side. It is impossible to tackle this ourselves, and dangerous when cars try to come through, sometimes becoming stuck or hitting parked vehicles.
