Hole on corner of hump over driving line

Reported in the Damaged Speed Humps category anonymously at 16:32, Saturday 25 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1960395.

I’m not sure if it is this hump or one near this, sorry.

Hump on Left as you travel towards Barnwell Road, after passing Kilborn Road on the right, coming from Queensway Direction.

Large pothole on the bottom right corner as you travel over it on driving line. I failed to spot it before I traveled over the hump and it caused significant suspension noise despite me having already checked my tyre pressures earlier in the day.

On returning over these humps the opposite way a short while after, I was avoiding the dropped manhole cover before the hump on the otherside to this and notice it was quite deep.

Other humps on this stretch are also deteriorating badly and all need inspecting.

I don’t travel this road regularly so can’t say how long/quickly this has developed.
