Deep Pothole Size and exact depth unseen. Unsafe to stop on busy A road.

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:58, Thu 17 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2436791.

I hit a pothole at approximately 10.30 am this morning on the A45 near Dodford. I did not see it in heavy traffic and bright sunshine and it would have been unsafe to steer around it anyway. and carried on driving a mile up the road my from nearside tyre began to deflate and I had to slow down. I drove slowly and carefully on a flat tyre to the Just Tyres Garage at the end of High March in Daventry and it has cost me £235.00 to straighten the wheel and replace the ruined tyre which was less that a year old and was in good condition. Also to reset the tracking to avoid further damage. I can see that this Pot Hole has been reported numerous times in recent weeks. My colleagues all know about this Pothole which has been present for at least 6 weeks.

  • I hit this pothole at 8pm last night which has damaged both the tyre and wheel of my car causing both to need to be replaced. Only once my car has been inspected tomorrow will I know if any further damage has been caused beyond this.

  • I hit this pothole at around 5:30 p.m. today what's returning from Northamptonshire general Hospital. It ripped a hole in my tyre and has damage my Alloy wheel. In the morning I am going back to measure it as it is too dark to do it at present and dangerous. I will measure the pothole width length and depth and will be entering a claim.

  • On 18th Jan I hit this pothole in the dark ( you can’t see it) and have lost half days pay by the time I was recovered from side of road. Also it cost £140 to replace a winter tyre. It is unsafe to take photos in that location but I was told by a local resident that several other people have had tyre blow outs here.
