Public footpath/cycle route overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 18:04, Thursday 2 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2975214.

On the afternoon of 27th July I explored the public footpath and cycle route at the top of Briar Hill area that runs near parallel to Danes Camp Way A5076. A lot of overgrown branches, weeds, bushes which can cause issues with cyclists and pedestrians sharing the route. There is also the personal security aspect as some of the street lights are covered by vegetation and also there are pockets of unclear direct line of sight where it is easy for someone to hide. The whole route needs pruning please.

We can confirm a works order has been raised to cut back the overhanging vegetation, in the next six months, under our maintenance programme.
