5" deep dangerous pothole near blind bend

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:12, Tuesday 28 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1965944.

This is a 5" deep and dangerous pothole that has been present for several months. It is rapidly deteriorating and has got worse since these photos were take two weeks ago. It is just before a blind bend at the crest of a hill and vehicles are having to veer onto the wrong side of the road to avoid hitting it. If hit, vehicles can be deflected onto the wrong side into the path of traffic coming in the other direction. Due to the blind bend it is very likely that it will result in a collision between a vehicle avoiding it and traffic, including buses, coming round the bend.
