Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 2 minutes later. ref: 1811994.

The a508 has had some road markings re done and new cat eyes however there are large areas of this road that have not been done especially in the middle . You CAN NOT see the middle white markings in the dark it's impossible in the wet and dark . This is one of the most dangerous stretches of road in Northamptonshire and the state of it is awful . Please can all of the white lines and cats eyes be completed asap before the clocks change . Small patches being done is not responsible of the council it all needs doing. Please send assessors in the dark and wet and you will see how atrocious this road is . It dangerous and despite numerous reports and numerous accidents nothing gets done . It needs new white lines and cats eyes all the way along it's an sunlight rural road

  • This road is still a disgrace. What will it take for the council to take some action - dare I say, a death? Action within one year is not acceptable. The whole road, from A5 Old Stratford to M1 Junction 15 needs re-marking and resurfacing - especially between Cosgrove and Potterspury/Yardley turning. With the news that the Freight Terminal has been given the green light, this road will become busier than ever. Please take some action before it's too late.
