Large potholes outside no 7, flooding private driveway.

Reported in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 09:26, Fri 3 May 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 4 minutes later. ref: 1619928.

Damaged kerb slightly further up the road allows fast flowing water onto pavement which cannot escape in the drains as they are blocked. Over the years this has clearly washed away the pavement including outside our house and has created potholes which eventually flood our drive. We moved to the house a year ago.

  • 3/3 On 13/5/19 work was scheduled to be completed within 28 days. It is now way past that timeframe and more heavy rain has brought more flooding to our property and a danger to people using the footpath.
