Defective edges along road

Reported via mobile in the Surface Condition category anonymously at 13:13, Thursday 25 April 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5898253.

The defective edges alongside the road edge on this stretch of road have been contributing to the constant collapsing of the drystone walls. These walls keep livestock in, if they are down cattle and sheep will cause an accident on the busy stretch of B6348. On examination you will be able to see where the walls are having to be rebuilt constantly. I would be much obliged if you could please investigate the issue and see if any improvements could possibly be made on order to minimise these problems in future. Kindest regards, Sarah Chapman
