50mm+ pothole in road at bottom of drive at 76 Mill Road, Bozeat, NN29 7JA

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 22:45, Tue 28 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2221125.

The pothole has been here for many years, it was first noticed after the installation of Gas mains in the late 80s. The erosion has worsened over the years and now the surface is now lower than the road drain and the flooding of the area after heavy rain is now accelerating the erosion. Vehicles have to take care on entering and leaving the drive especially cars with lower exhausts, it causes them to ground on the footpath. It has come to my notice more since injuring my shoulder, when as a passenger, it jolts me which causes significant pain. Thank you in anticipation.
