Dangerous road conditions

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 20:48, Mon 30 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1787090.

This has been going on for at least 4 years that I’m aware of. There have been multiple times that these holes have been visited by road workers who station a worker at the top of Johns road to watch out for the boss while they read the paper and drink tea for hours. They never make any sensible impact on the potholes. The road is a danger to drivers who must use this road because they are trying to steer out of danger whilst being bounced around while they end up in the path of oncoming traffic. Neglect will cause an incident. The council will be responsible for incidents and damage to vehicles unless they take proper action and repair the structure of the road and resurface it properly.
