Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1587688.

This pot hole has been there for several months and has been reported quite a few times. It did have yellow markings a round it however nothing has been done and it is becoming dangerous. It’s has an impact on reversing out of our and several neighbours property which could cause serious damage to vehicles. It’s causing a traffic issue where people try to avoid it, or they mount the curbs to go around which is highly unsafe near the local school and generally elderly residents.

The pothole is in the middle of the carriageway and is now approx 8 foot long and the worst part is 2 foot long but 1 foot wise and is nearly 6 inches deep now. It is a crater if tyres go in. You can hear when cars go into it with a crunch or bump on suspension. The pothole is directly outside house number 69 and affects the driveways of the adjacent 4 properties. It’s a bus route so the buses are increasing the deterioration of the pothole. It’s a school route so there is large volumes of traffic using the route daily.
