As part of my social media campaign to highlight road and footpath repairs I visited Ford Street this morning to view the dangerous condition of the pavement #RosieRoadRepairs.
About a year ago I was contacted by the Highways Department and told they had some money in the budget to repair one piece of pavement in my division and asked where would I like it to be? I immediately said Ford Street because this is one of the many back streets in Kettering that seem to be ignored by the Council. Instead, they ignored my recommendation and did a series of small repairs in a nice suburban road where some of the entrances to people’s private driveways needed a little bit of attention.
I have once again this morning reported the condition of Ford Street and flagged it up as dangerous because the defects on the pavement represent a genuine hazard and it would be easy for anyone to trip or fall.
