Deep and dangerous potholes along Port Road from Duston to Upper Harlestone

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 10:38, Tuesday 15 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2295391.

Very dangerous edge of road all along Port Road from bridge over A428 to Upper Harlestone. Deep pot holes. The edges of Port Road are breaking up and there are now very deep holes. Particularly bad from bridge over A428 and to Upper Harlestone (mainly on left side heading away from Duston) These would easily throw cyclists off their bikes potentially causing life threatening accidents. Would damage car wheels as well.

Note: I previously reported this issue and have been notified it's been fixed. This is not the case. I walked along this road yesterday (14th Sept) and there are still many deep and dangerous pot holes. This is a popular route for walkers and cyclists and really does need fixing. The report's reference number is 2277508.
