  • The hole is on the A428 as cars pull out from Northampton Rd. It isquckly getting bigger and is now 18" x 12" x 4" deep. It is now dangerous as it prevents cars from accelerating into fast moving traffic on the A428. The load crash if it is hit, is unnerving and drivers naturally react by lifting of the accelerator. There is now a major risk of a rear end collision. Some drivers are also trying to avoid the hole by moving towards the middle of the carriageway.
