What a Difference a day (or 6 months) makes

What a difference six months make. 

Any recent travellers along the A4300 towards Kettering, whether on foot or wheels, will have noticed some improvements to the foot/cycle-path. The slight delay caused by the road-work traffic lights, was certainly worth the wait when the results were revealed.

It was in late July that Frank Harding, a frequent walker on this route, used his common sense and emailed Northamptonshire Highways. Frank takes up the story:

“I emailed Northants Highways about the state of the footpath along Kettering/Stamford Road in Geddington. The footpath is not only for walkers, but cyclists too. Over the years it has become very narrow due to the grass growing over it and it was impossible to pass without stepping into the road or onto the muddy side.

Imagine my surprise when returning from a vacation recently to see that the work requested has been done. I was quick to complain, so must now be quick to praise Mr Wright for getting the footpath cleared and safe.”

Of course, we’ll have to wait a few days for the snow to clear before we realise the benefit!
