Footpath from Weedon to Daventy - Zero Maintenance

Reported via desktop in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 17:31, Sunday 19 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3011477.

Footpath from Weedon to Daventy has had zero Maintenance, or if it has it doesn't comply with the ISO9001 standard you are supposed to work to.

Path needs reinstating and clearing, this has not been done for years and in places the path is less than 25cm wide. I have selected a single point on the road but this path from the Dodford junction all the way to daventry needs addressing.

  • The issues has been sorted. The only way this problem was fixed was to get the local councillor involved. I tried to follow the system and report the issues. But the contractor kept closing the jobs stating there was nothing wrong. Eventually the councillor took the issue top and as if by magic all of a sudden the contractor acknowledges that there was a problem and would fix it.

    My advice is submit the problem and then send it to your local councillor to chase up. It's the only way things get sorted.
