Paths in poor condition

Reported via mobile in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 10:49, Sunday 17 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3067003.

Can you please tell me when, if ever, the footpaths in Moulton are inspected? There are a large number of deep holes and sunken drains on Northampton Lane North that have been here for well over a year so they either never get looked at or are just ignored.

It is the main route through the village, so all of the school children walk it every day, it has a care home on it and a doctors surgery so I don't feel it is in good enough condition given the amount of foot traffic it receives.

I did notice a new, small repair outside one of the house's drives but there's easily another 10 that were just as bad, if not worse.

I trust this will be passed on to whoever deals with these issues.

Thank you
