Posts appeared in verge - danger to cyclists forced to edge of road

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 09:45, Wednesday 16 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2795436.

More of a danger to cyclists than a footpath obstruction, but a pair of ~1m posts have appeared near the kerb on Thurston Drive (by houses 12 and 14). Any cyclist unfortunate enough to be pushed over to the kerb - it happens here with left-turning cars - is likely to catch a post and be off. Not safe. First noticed 15th June.
