Footpath Defect

Reported via desktop in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 13:37, Monday 18 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3069462.

The defect in the footpath caused by an old repair sinking leaving a difference in levels of approximately 25mm. In short, an accident waiting to happen. See photographs attached .

Location of defective footpath causing the trip injury, walking along Main road Crick from the Marsh towards the Co Op on high street. Just before the Dolls House cottage there is a pedestrian gate entrance. It’s obvious the tarmac has been replaced at sometime, which over, time has sunk. The entire section of footpath from the Marsh to the High needs replacing, why, we as residents have to wait for accidents to happen before things improve
