Two large potholes on bend in Gretton Road causing drivers to swerve into oncoming traffic

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 08:57, Wed 19 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1666364.

There are two large potholes on the bend of Gretton Road past Kirby Lane. One of the potholes is the size of a space hopper and the other is the size of a basket ball and both are 4-5 inches deep. As the road is at national speed limit, drivers are approaching the bend at speed (due to the speed limit) then seeing the potholes and swerving to avoid them, as if a driver were to hit the potholes at speed it would damage a vehicle. As these are located on a bend it is extremely dangerous for cars to swerve into the other lane as this may cause a head on collision. The location of the potholes and the speed of the road makes them extremely dangerous for vehicles.
