Edge of roadway crumbling

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 17:51, Sun 31 March 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1589705.

Higham Park Road, Rushden is an adopted road. The edge of the roadway leading to the Bedfordia grain store at Higham Park Road, Rushden is becoming badly damaged. The lorries accessing the grain store are being forced off the carriageway because the hedge along the roadway has grown out. A 6 inch deep rut has developed along the side of the road where the verge has been gouged out. As a result lumps of tarmac are breaking away. The damage to the verge and roadway has occurred over the last three months .
