Path completely impassable causing padestrians to risk walk in road.

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:11, Sat 2 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3642067.

Weeds and foliage growing out of path and breaking up a 25' stretch of said path outside 43 and 45 levitts Road. The root of the main source has also caused a big crack of the wall at 45. This was reported a few years back resulting in you clearing the obstacle, but not curing the issue as path would need relaying to cure the problem.

  • Ref: 3642067 What will be your course of action with regards to the crack in my front garden wall caused by the root, and the lifting/breaking up of the tarmac path and driveway caused by the vegetation?

  • This path is extremely dangerous, the hedges are over growing and risk scratching peoples eyes. There appears to be a wasps nest in the over grown foliage. Can this be addressed urgently we have had a number of complaints.
