Badly Damaged Verges

Reported via desktop in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 01:20, Sunday 21 March 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2622694.

As shown in the pictures all 3 verges on this triangular section of grass housing a grit bin and sign have been badly damaged by vehicles driving over them as the road width is slightly too narrow.

The road surface needs to be very slightly widened in line with where you can see the vehicle tyres have driven over the edge of the verges. The triangle of grass should also be kerbed with wooden posts installed around it to help prevent future damage to the verges.... this would be a cost effective long term solution.
