Many potholes between 20-40mm in depth and general condition of the wearing course in the close

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:15, Mon 17 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2249406.

There are a number of localised potholes throughout the whole of the close, there is also large areas of wearing course that have deteriorated over the years to the point where there is little to none 40-45mm of wearing course on the road anymore, this has started to expose manhole covers as highlighted in the attached pictures and cause a number of trip hazards. The neighbors have listed this on many occasions over the years but still no action has been taken. This close (Rowan Close) was constructed in 1985 and from what I can see little to no repairs have ever been made to this road.

  • My daughter has tripped on some of the potholes on the close. We live at No. 3. The road is a disgrace. There are currently people here repairing around the metalwork ONLY. Someone is going to injur themselves yet you find it suitable to only repair PAR of the road when the rest could be done while the workmen are here. This cant possibly be an efficient use of labour or materials?
