The foot path is eroded

Reported via mobile in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 16:56, Sunday 25 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2690478.

My elderly father and other senior residents find it very hard to walk on this eroded footpath. Its extremely difficult for elderly to walk with a Walker on this very uneven footpath. It’s been in this poor condition for number of years and now getting more worse. The companies who dig of the path for some work to be done are not putting the footpath back in to the good shape. There should be some sort of Checking process for these companies to make sure they tidy up the path properly. I am hoping the footpath will be resurfaced soon on the Winstanley Road between Victoria Road and Strode Road. Thank you

  • Thank you for your further comments. We have checked into this matter and can confirm that we attended this area on 9th June, however there were parked cars on the footway. Therefore, we have re-attended and completed this one today. However, the photos you have uploaded today don’t seem to be on Winstanley Road as there is no pub and no modular paving as shown in the first photograph. We kindly request that you double check the location and submit a new report, if necessary. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
