Overgrown vegetation obstructing footpath / cycle path

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 13:57, Tue 9 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3113447.

The footpath between Waterside Way and Holiday Inn is dangerously overgrown. It is both a footpath and cycle path. in a number of places it is so overgrown the path is too narrow and very unsafe for pedestrians and/or cyclists travelling opposite directions to pass, and also for cyclists to pass pedestrians travelling in the same direction. The path is very close to a very busy road with large HGVs travelling within close proximity of the kerb. It seems to be only a matter of time before there is a very serious accident.
