Failed reinstatement (probably by Western Power Distribution)

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Geoffrey Gill at 08:35, Fri 27 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1782841.

There is a pronounced dip in the road surface at this point. Some other cable laying work was recently done in the adjacent footway (not related to the subject of this report) and as a preliminary to this work red spray paint was applied indicating the existence of an electricity cable running across the road. The backfill to this trench for this cable is now subsiding. Highways have already visited and marked an area with white spray paint, but the area marked is only half the carriageway, and there is surely a case for carrying out the new reinstatement across the whole carriageway. It is not known how old the "original" reinstatement is - probably several years.
