Disgraceful state of roads

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 22:17, Saturday 9 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2469639.

Good evening,

I am writing to express my utter concern about the state of the road for around 1 mile at the above mentioned location. From the turning towards Buckingham at wicken right up to the BP garage the road is an absolute disgrace. Around a year ago I hit a pot hole on this road which blew my tyre. Every time I drive down this road it is filled with potholes and uneven surfaces. This has been an issue for years and years and has never ever been sorted and quite frankly it is disgraceful that such an unsafe road used by so many people to commute to work every day has never been given the consideration to be fixed. You would think in a time such as now while the majority of people are working from home this would be a great opportunity to sort out this dangerous stretch of road. It is imperative that this is sorted before it causes a serious accident.

  • The 28 days has now surpassed and I had to drive along this road yesterday and NOTHING had been done. In fact it appears to have got worse. The amount of cars swerving and crossing the middle lane to avoid these massive holes in the road it is only a matter of time before a serious accident occurs due to negligence of the council. I am truly truly shocked something serious hasn’t happened already.

    The road has been unsafe for YEARS - I will be following this up with the local MP before Northamptonshire county council end up with a fatal accident on their hands due to lack of care.

  • You have informed me that this has now been resolved and IT HAS NOT. I drove down this road this morning and yesterday and the road is absolutely littered with holes. You are going to seriously need to look into this before someone crashes and it is through your disgraceful lack of concern.

    I know I am not the only person who has complained about this road. This has been continuing for years and NOTHING has been done. It’s is absolutely disgraceful

  • Once again nothing has been done despite claims it has. Either that or you are employing some absolute rogue workmen who are highly unqualified. the state of this section of road has got worse and worse. There are not metre long holes in several places. It is a matter of time until people who pay hundreds a year in road tax who do not want there card damaged swerve into oncoming traffic and you are left with blood on your hands. You are negligent and this should be investigated as a criminal matter as you are endangering lives on the public who are forced to use this road every single day. Disgusting.
