These potholes have been here for around a couple months now and it covers around 0. 3 miles of the A4500 Weedon road just before the Beefeater on Harpole. The potholes are fairly large and I've damaged my wheels on 6.10.20 when switching lanes hitting several potholes in that process

  • Baffling how you can spend 6 months doing road works to modify the road, but fix the pot holes which have been there for a year/months? Nah... you couldn't write it 🤣 Hit one (of many, they're in the double digits) this morning as I didn't see it till too late as it was dark with my dip beams on. Developed a nasty knock in my suspension. Luckily it just knocked something loose which I was able to tighten up myself. You got lucky there as it would have been your bill. Get it sorted already. Thank you.

    Repair costs are £211.98 for which I am requesting reimbursement.

    I look forward to your response/payment.

    At 5.45pm on the 12/12/20 I hit this ridiculously huge pothole, in the dark, which has completely destroyed my tyre, see pics. I am shocked to discover that this was reported months ago but yet nothing has been done and the pothole has likely deteriorated more over time. This is a serious accident waiting to happen. I am very lucky I didn’t have a complete blowout. I will be claiming for reimbursement of costs to have my wheel fixed and any other tracking damage that may have been done. Sort it out Northampton Council!!!

    Hit this section of potholes on the 9th December 2020. Resulted in a lost tyre and £280 repair costs including alignment and a new tyre. Walked along the section yesterday to take pictures. Sad to see the number of people encountering damage since.
