Obstructing footpath

Reported in the Obstruction or hazard on road category anonymously at 12:11, Thu 19 December 2019

Blocking only access to Ridsdale close from shop car park, having to go on road to get to footpath, being blocked buy shop tenants , no signs say works being done and no road traffic lights in dark to show obstacles. This is the only access point as we have to walk over car park to get to the path, as my family have to push the push chairs and mobility scooters have to go on the road to get back on the path thank you.
