Road sinking

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 21:06, Thu 5 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1757667.

This road has shown signs of sinking further and further. Will you wait until a sink-hole appears and people are hurt, or worse? We drive on the wrong side of the road, heading down Johns Road, to avoid the sunken part of the road. Repairs have been made to a few pot holes but this sinking area is ignored, and is getting worse. This road has deteriorated consistently since additional houses were built at the bottom of the road, when a great deal of heavy machinery was taken up and down the road for many many months,
