15 x 10 inch pothole

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 10:38, Wednesday 20 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2490106.

I reported this problem yesterday at 15:42. You sent me an email at 21:02 to say that you had done an on-site risk assessment and based on that assessment no action would be necessary! I highly doubt that you came out in that short time, however if you did you would not have deemed it as no action required. I explained that the vibration that occurs when vehicles go over the hole shakes my windows! The first time we were woken today was at 5:07!! If you are genuinely short staffed and cannot fix this due to lack of personnel at least do me the curtesy of being honest. As you can see by the picture attached there are large pieces of tarmac being thrown up and one such piece has hit my car resulting in damage. Please review this again

  • If this has been inspected usually you put a yellow marking around it!! All the pot holes in the area have no yellow markings!! These are becoming very dangerous especially with the amount of rain we having and all the heavy farm vehicles that use this road. Cars are serving to avoid this hole which means going over the centre of the road, as this is just on a corner there could be fatal circumstances!! Learner drivers don’t stand a chance !!! Repairing these pot holes within 28 days is not acceptable. We have to pay our taxes on time!!
