  • Driving from Quinton towards Blisworth on Courteenhall Road Thursday 9th Jan at 07:10 in the dark, raining heavily and unlit road just as I passed under the M1 Motorway Bridge and the intersection with a private drive that runs parallel to the southbound motorway carriageway there are 3 deep potholes that I could not avoid as a vehicle was coming in the opposite direction from Blisworth. The impact was so severe I thought I’d hit a large dog/deer. My alloy wheel now has a 100mm flat spot from the impact. The depth of the pothole was 110mm deep (like hitting a kerb at 40mph +) if I had been in my motorbike I’d dread to think of what could of happened.

  • I hit this pothole on 11/1/2020 when it was dark and very wet, so the hole was covered by a puddle. There was a bang when we hit and the damage to my car required a repair of the tyre fitting as well as a new tyre.

  • Huge potholes under the bridge on this road requiring urgent attention

  • This road needs urgent attention. The potholes under the bridge in particular are hazardous but others along the road are also bad. Please Northamptonshire council, get out there and sort out this road, it may be a minor road but it gets a lot of passing traffic on the way to the motorway.
