Entrance to side road being blocked by people parking over it.

Reported via mobile in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 08:21, Wednesday 23 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2812008.

Road markings insufficient for the number of houses on side road. Faded to the point where they’re not seen leading to near misses with cars and children on their way to and from school. There used to just be around 10 flats in this road, there are now 25 houses all with cars and another three to be built. It’s a blind exit and with the road markings missing parents often pull in front of the end of the road thinking it’s a drive or dirt track. Kids often walk across the entrance without looking thinking it’s not a road.
