This road is full of potholes and road is sinking in places . Most of the damage is old repairs . It cost me £200 in repairs it could have cost a lot more if I had lost control of the car . Car tax and speeding fines should be more than enough to keep our county roads amongst the best. Northampton is growing mainly around warehouses and distribution. Please Keep our roads safe and a pleasure to drive on . I see drivers every day swerving to miss pot holes . I really hope one does not cause an accident that can not be repaired.

  • I have just hit a very large and dangerous pot hole on the left hand side of Sandy Lane travelling up from the Shell garage roundabout towards Berrywood Road. I am going to get car checked out, as it did not sound very good.

    I hit a pot hole last night travelling home from work. I work for Northants Police and need my car for work. I’m having to go and get it repaired today at a cost to myself and hope there’s no other damage caused to my car.
