Footpath now too narrow

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 10:32, Friday 26 March 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2634828.

For some years earth and grass on the footpath along the north side of Northampton Rd opposite the old Cricket ground has been allowed to accumulate and gradually make the usable part too narrow for mums to safely walk their children side-by-side to the Primary School . The horrific accident reported on BBC Look East last night occurred on a similar pathway. Can you please address the situation before a similar accident occurs in Roade.
