New development top of Norfolk Street

Reported via Android in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 18:54, Monday 23 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2954090.

Whilst in the construction of the new flats the construction company has smashed all the paving slabs. They move when stepped on and all are uneven. This is a very dangerous trip hazard as I found out at five in the morning going to work in the dark. This company needs to replace these slabs and make it safe to walk on. Not a cheap asphalt job that sinks as soon as they sling their hook and the taxpayer has to pay for it.

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 17:39, Tuesday 21 September 2021

  • We can now confirm that the site has been made safe. We do not replace paving slabs due to vehicles over riding the footway causing damage. We generally replace paving slabs with tarmac. Unfortunately, we have no evidence that the developer has caused the damage, so there is legally nothing we can do. We can confirm that the water meter has been reported to Anglian Water to reset.
