There are warehouses being built next to this road, and where the road has been dug up it has created a deep hole.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 22:02, Friday 17 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1945956.

The area is being developed as warehousing. The road was dug up in several places to allow for amenities to be put in place and a pedestrian crossing. There are at least three places on the road where trenches were dug up and filled in. This one in particular has resulted in a long thin deep pothole where the tarmac was laid to fill in the hole. The pothole is unavoidable as it lays exactly where your nearside wheels are in the carriageway. It has been there since before Christmas. I drive down the road every weekday and it is deteriorating fast.
