The whole junction of Watson Close at Rockingham road is a mass is patched potholes

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:25, Friday 22 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2495757.

The continuous patching of potholes is making the road even worse. The uneven road due to pot holes is being made worse by the rain and the holes are getting worse. The amount of lorries using this road makes it worse and it sounds like a continuous earthquake as a result of the many potholes and uneven repairs. Pedestrians are getting soaked when it rains as vehicles drive past.
