Very large pot hole at junction. Dangerous

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 08:24, Friday 4 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2277741.

There is a very large and deep pothole at this junction. Yesterday i saw a cyclist swerve to miss this and was very nearly knocked over by a car as he did so. Could have resulted in fatality - very serious. Over the last few months this has become increasingly worse and now cars and lorries are having to drive around this defect. it is a wonder that nobody has be hurt so far. Especially as this is close to where the patrons of a day centre for people with special needs cross the road. THIS IS AN URGENT ISSUE THAT NEEDS ADDRESSING BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT OR WORSE. YOU HAVE BEEN INFORMED AND THIS WILL NOW BE ON YOUR CONSCIENCE IF THERE IS AN INCIDENT

  • Wednesday 9th Sept 2020 - these holes seem to be getting much bigger. This exact same junction had a very serious accident last time, and the same thing is going to happen again. VERY dangerous as cars swerve to the left into other cars at the junction, in order to avoid these massive holes

  • This is getting worse daily, i cannot believe it is taking so long to get his sorted. I have seen several near-miss scenarios here and several of road rage where one party avoids the potholes by pulling up in wrong lane and annoys other traffic. Will it take a serious accident to get this sorted ?
