Coronavirus update (16 April 2020)
Northamptonshire Highways has a responsibility to keep the roads and footpaths safe to use.
Services are being reviewed to ensure duties can be carried out and teams can address all safety critical defects across the network.
Please continue to use our Street Doctor service to report highways issues.
We have now finished our
winter gritting service for this year. We have standby crews if things were to change.
Thank you for all your support during the winter.
We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep all road users safe.
Northamptonshire Highways have reviewed the gully cleansing service in light of the current coronavirus situation.
Due to a reduction in staffing levels and Government guidance we are currently running an emergency / reactive service in Northamptonshire. We are working with our crews to ensure they are complaint with social distancing. This includes changes to vehicle usage and welfare.
Before you start
Some problems cannot be reported through Street Doctor because they are the responsibility of other organisations. Please check first whether the problem you wish to report is listed below:
To report an abandoned vehicle:
Please supply the registration number, type and condition of the abandoned car, and its location.
Check who is responsible for dealing with different types of flooding on the Northamptonshire Flood Toolkit website.
Please note that if the flooding is occurring on the public highway, you should report this via Street Doctor so we can investigate and take any necessary action.
