Channel & highway edge obstructed

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category by Dave Gaster at 15:49, Monday 17 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2731753.

The channel is extremely blocked in places by long term detritus and weeds, making it impossible to cycle on a line inside the white line Some branches extend into the carriageways beyond the white line, needing individually cutting back after nesting bird surveys Most self seeded trees on the East bound side are becoming quite a problem

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the channel of the road adjacent to A422 being obstructed due to excessive vegetation in this area. Specifically, that you feel that this could cause a hazard to the safety of all cyclists. We appreciate your concerns and can confirm that a works order has been raised to cut this back. This should be completed in September. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please be assured that you will receive an update once works are concluded.

  • Why is the vegetation not being cut back now? Especially branches that could cause injuries.

    The detritus also needs sweeping from the channels, has that been scheduled?

  • Thank you for your further comments. Unfortunately, work cannot commence now and will most likely be carried out in September/October, as there are currently birds nesting in the vegetation there. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will attend as soon as it is viable for us to do so. We will also instruct our street cleansing team to attend at the same time.
