A sunken manhole cover & frame and adjacent pothole now forming

Reported in the Loose / Raised/Sunken category anonymously at 11:29, Wed 27 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1864421.

There’s a sunken manhole cover & frame (in a position where vehicle’s wheels invariably hit it) on the approach to the A4500 / Northampton Road traffic lights – in the lane for vehicles going straight on to Mears Ashby Road (a couple of vehicle-lengths before the stop line). It also has a pothole forming next to it. This one I’m now reporting is slightly worse than the gully grating & frame you recently attended to in West Street & significantly worse than a sunken manhole cover & frame you attended to in High Street (both in the last month or so).

  • It's at the point where vehicles are braking (when the lights are red), meaning the vehicle's suspension is being being subjected to unnecessarily & possibly damaging loads (in the long term). Not to mention the distinct possibility it could cause a motorcyclist to lose control.
