When Lorries and some heavier cars go over it, the house shakes, and at night with the lorries still coming down the road a bit faster the noise and shaking wakes us through out the night. I think it has appeared in a previous repair location and has been there for 5-6 weeks Thank you

  • Dear Northampton council, 2ft x1ft Potholes on Towcester Road in the middle of the road. I was about to report this problem only to find that it has already been reported since January and nothing has been done to rectify the problem since then. I have serious concerns about the Council's delay in resolving this issue and it would appear that Northampton Council have absolutely no regard for the local residents by allowing this problem to continue for so long . the Council has failed to realise the significant impact on the local Residents and the potential damages this may be causing to nearby properties including mine. the portholes are situated right in the middle of a very busy road and it needs urgent attention not 6 months. I am afraid we the residents are the ones suffering and having to lose sleep as a result of the Northampton council's neglect of public road . this is getting worse by the day, waking our babies and toddlers up in the middle of the night , children are often heard screaming in fear and then refusing to sleep due to fear of the house collapsing .Children are traumatised by the horrific shaking of the house on a daily basis caused by the portholes and in the morning children are grumpy and unable to concentrate due to lack of sleep. This is now a potential safeguarding concern for the children as a result of council's neglect and therefore Children social services will now be contacted to also intervene in order to promote the welfare of the young children who have been subjected to sleep deprivation as a result of the problematic portholes. the way our house shakes whenever a heavy vehicle goes over the portholes must be causing some serious damages to properties nearby including mine. I will therefore be escalating this matter to the MPs if this issue is not prioritised and resolved as a matter of urgency

    Thank you
