Deep pothole on southbound side of Wootton Road just SW of the motorway overpass.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:34, Friday 11 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2290238.

The surface of this section of Wooton road adjavcent to the side-track is very poorly surfaced and has been repaired many times. It is very susceptible to pot holes and there is a large pothole on the southbound sode of the road at the moment. It is particularly damgerous because the driver's view of the road is poor due to the darkness as you drive under the motorway and potholes are very difficult to see when the broken, patched surface is wet.

  • I recommend that you investigate this urgently (rather than “within a month”) as this will continue to damage cars but far more importantly is likely to throw a cyclist or motorcyclist off their bike. It is very dangerous.
