Bridleway Damaged by Vehicles

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 14:00, Wed 17 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3128978.

This section of bridleway has suffered and continues to suffer damage caused by vehicles. The surface is becoming very wet and deep which is inappropriate for equines and pedestrian use. This section is this wet and muddy even though we have been experiencing dry weather conditions. When it gets wetter this section will become impassable for equines.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. This bridleway was inspected on 18/11/21. At the time of this inspection the route was found to be passable for users of the Public Bridleway. However, a letter has been sent to the relevant landowner to make them aware that Northamptonshire Highways have received a complaint regarding this issue together with the request that the bridleway is not damaged further by vehicles during the winter months which could make it impassable by legitimate users.
