  • I first reported this problem well over 1 year ago, the running water down elsden road across Midland road and then down senwick has started to lift kerb stones on the junction and the road on senwick road is starting to collapse around the man hole covers. There is now a massive plot hole on Midland road due to the increased traffic because of the new road and the amount of standing water when it rains. The while road network around wellingborough is an absolute joke and to be honest so is fix my street because nothing ever gets fixed after reporting it!!!!!
