Reported via mobile in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 17:36, Thursday 8 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2660718.

Large stones have been laid by Gas Board when they excavated the area for gas mains work and never replaced the stones with similar instead looks like they have replaced with hardcore and is a trip hazard when walking as you twist your ankles. Unable to push a pushchair or my grandmothers wheelchair along the footpath as it’s so uneven.

  • This is the area that Cadent installed the new gas points in the footpath, they worked for over 2 months in the road and on the footpath, there is no dropped curbs where tarmac ends for wheelchair or pushchairs to be used on the side of the road closed to Laneside Hollow and according to council map it has a footpath down both sides of Windingbrook Lane with grass verges either side.

  • Photos of the new gas points in the verge and not in the road, other picture shows the large stones that have been laid after clearance of the site, no grass verge put back in after the removal of container and equipment, also clearly no actually footpath whether it’s tarmac or stones had been laid.
