Various deep potholes - the first one now 60mm deep

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:24, Tue 22 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2443655.

I reported this pothole in July at 40mm deep and was informed it did not meet the criteria to repair. It is now 60mm deep and there are others in Maltings Road which equally need repair. On Sunday, a neighbour slipped into the hole (filled with water) and hurt her ankle. Can you please give this pothole and the others in the road attention ASAP. Thank you

  • Potholes are getting worse and last week a child fell off her bike after dropping into it. As the council is well aware of it and have declined to fix it after the last report, if I hear of another incident and there is an injury, I will personally pay the legal fees to sue the council. It’s disgraceful.
