Sign and barrier left behind

Reported via desktop in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category by Mrs Monica de Bokx at 14:34, Monday 23 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2953424.

This footpath closed sign and accompanying barrier and sandbags have been here idle for at least a couple of weeks now. The sandbags are starting to open and spill sand. The only thing obstructing the right of way for pedestrians, on this corner of Oxford and Sheaf Street leading to a shopping area, are these items - please can a swift removal be arranged?

  • Barrier ,sandbags and rusty metal box still on footpath. Would have been sorted promptly if this was japan. A busy corner this with shoppers, schoolkids, mobility scooters. Accident waiting to happen. Council are not bothered or too lazy to sort it.
