Multiple dangerous potholes

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:19, Thursday 30 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1969436.

There are now over 15 serious potholes and surface damage/issues that have been reported for some time, still not properly repaired on Kings Lane! These are now dangerous to pedestrians (as there is no footpath on Kings Lane) and more importantly to the young children that live and play on this lane especially on their bikes, they will cause serious injury or worse. The potholes are now significant that they will also cause damage to vehicles. Over the past 10 years these potholes have been poorly repaired and they return to a damaged condition very quickly. Given that GigaClear is now also digging up the lane (and currently also damaging the grass verges - see picture) Kings Lane needs properly resurfacing not just patching up yet again. Please address ASAP.
