Road in appalling state

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 18:03, Mon 1 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2138047.

The stretch of Finedon Road that runs between 49 - 57 is in an appealing state. A few small potholes have recently been filled but whilst these were done numerous others have been left. This section of road has potholes forming daily, not only this but the road edging along the kerb line of 49-53 is disintegrating, along with a poor join at the junction of Ambler close where the tarmac is grumbling away. Finedon road is extremely busy with traffic and the road condition is not suitable for the extremely large double decker lorries which speed down the road daily and at night, there are in excess of 40-50 lorries per day accessing business at Keelings and Furness Lane, this is not suitable for a residential area. Something needs to be done about the state of the road, ours houses shake when buses and large lorries pass due to the inferior quality of the road condition, but also something needs to be done about the amount of lorries and the times of day they are using the road, it is residential after all.
