Water constantly running down the road. Creates muddy puddle directly outside my home. Road deteriorating

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:01, Tuesday 20 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2349211.

This happens every year (15 years at least!). Water comes from somewhere up the road (confirmed as not Anglian Water equipment - job number 58042245) and throughout winter streams down the road. The road gets worse and worse. There is a dip in the road outside my house so we have a permanent muddy puddle splashing both ourselves, our cars and our house. In winter, when temperatures fall, we end up with a completely frozen and dangerous stretch of road. Lorries and trailers bounce in the dip creating noise at all sorts of hours. If the source of the problem can't be fixed please put appropriate drains in and level the road.
