Deep pothole that covers the majority of one lane. About 10 feet long and 5 feet wide.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:41, Mon 6 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 4 minutes later. ref: 1921879.

This pothole has been here for over 3 months and is gradually getting worse. It is very deep and could have significant damage to cars/tyres. There is no possible way to avoid the pothole as it covers the whole lane and it is not possible to drive on the opposite side of the road as it is approaching a hill. It is eastbound travelling from Chelveston towards Hargrave at the bottom of the hill/dip.

  • This pothole is now no longer a pothole - more a crater in the road. It can't be avoided and is getting wider and deeper by the day. Something needs to be done urgently about this.
