Reported via desktop in the Safety Bollard - Damaged/Missing category by John Hook at 22:09, Friday 28 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2755937.

Aggate way, Earls Barton is a dead end. The road has concrete bollards at the bottom. The footpath continues to the B573. Vehicles are using the footpath to gain access to the road which in turn joins the A45 dual carriageway. Vehicles are skirting round the bollards. It is unclear if a bollard has been removed to allow vehicle access to the footpath. Length of time this price has been occurring is unknown.

  • Thank you for your query to Northamptonshire Highways with regard to vehicles accessing along Aggate Way Earls Barton to the B573. We have looked into this further and it appears that there was once a section of fence alongside the two concrete bollards that helped stop vehicle access however it appears that this was removed some time ago which is allowing vehicles to access through here. We will arrange for an additional bollard to be installed at this location to prevent vehicles accessing through.
