Persistent issues with traffic destroying the verge

Reported via desktop in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 09:44, Fri 10 November 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5195723.

Grass verge being destroyed due to lorries reversing into pub carpark. HIghways have been before and said they would move salt bin to prevent this happening but they never did. This has been an ongoing issue for quite sometime ( 7 Years) . Needs resolving soon as possible. Resident did put rocks out to prevent traffic going on it, but these were removed due to complaint.

  • Another vehicle has driven over the same area. Moving the salt bin would solve the problem.

  • Yet another vehicle has run on to the grass while using the pub. How is the investigation going ?. I still think the answer is to move the salt bin along to where the damage is being done.

  • Talking to the driver of the street cleaning vehicle who said that the fire hydrant in the picture was full of soil and needs to be cleaned out incase a building caught fire.
