Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 09:36, Tue 9 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2148027.

A new chicane section has just been installed into Evenley on Broad Lane Not only are the bollards wonky both sides, but the new strip of tarmac laid down is really bumpy - and not intended to be...... did they not roll over it to flatten it? This is only going to get worse. Can they come back and do it properly please? So disappointing

  • Your update of 25th June states that ,''the carriageway will ne monitored going forward. I was driving towards the A43 from Evenley around 1.00pm today and hit a deep pothole causing significant damage to a brand new alloy as well as causing the tyre to deflate moreorless instantly. I will be sending you the invoice for the tyre and a new alloy as this is clearly something you were aware of and failed to do anything about

  • The chicane is now a muddy mess, leaves are accumulating too, with the heavy weather soon to arrive such a road surface will create a serious hazard.
