Two large potholes over 1 foot in diameter and getting deeper due to LGV traffic accessing Chase Park Farm.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:30, Wed 18 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1895104.

These potholes have been developing over the past two months but are now much deeper due to the cold weather breaking up the supporting layer. The heavy traffic accessing Chase Park Farm (44T bulk trailer trucks) have speeded up the deterioration.

  • This hole is now in a dangerous condition. There is a hump in the road (not clear from the photo) and this makes it impossible to see the hole when travelling up the road. The hole has become larger and deeper over recent weeks, and should be filled as a priority to prevent a possibly serious accident

  • This photo was taken on 15th Jan. This is the worst pothole in the vicinity, but the whole area is breaking up and really needs a complete resurfacing job.
