Unavoidable several deep potholes on tight corner

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 18:31, Tuesday 16 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2158915.

There are MANY deep and dangerous potholes on this corner and Leading to the next corner (they are very tight) so starting on Spencer parade and leading into Raunds road. due to the tightness of the bends and the fact that lorries and busses use these roads the pot holes are COMPLETELY UNAVOIDABLE and due to the pot holes being so deep and on the corner it makes my whole care slide to the side of the road and will eventually cause an accident (it nearly did for me on 2occasions). I have damaged both of my passenger side tires due to the potholes (luckily I have a mobility car and they provide free tire care and repair, others are not So lucky and will be having to pay out to repair their tyres due to the road being unsafe , this is a cost that many will not have atm due to pandemic etc) also because they are so deep it causes me physical pain every time I HAVE had to drive that way. I suffer with 2 chronic pain conditions and the jolts I get when driving this way has left me in a lot of unneeded pain And I’m sure I’m not the only one that this is affecting this way. (this was due to the potholes, not because of my pain being bad originally) The potholes have been there for a few months now, other roads have been repaired in stanwick (Mansfield street for example which is a road that needs repairing often as I’m sure your aware). These need looking at ASAP before more people have damaged vehicles Unnecessary pain or there is a serious road accident.
