Road surface damaged and potholes growing

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 10:48, Fri 5 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2526523.

The surface of Jubilee Street has degraded significantly along the entire length in the last two to three months. The road was starting to break up over the summer, but the wintery weather has exacerbated the damage. There are potholes from the junction with Victoria Street all the way up to the top. Some of the potholes are still small but are growing with use and the freeze-thaw cycle. There are some large potholes that could be dangerous to pedestrians crossing the street or cyclists. It is only a matter of time before an accident occurs. The areas that have been previously patched are also crumbling and are in a state of disrepair. The use of the road by heavy trucks and construction vehicles attending the new houses between nos. 38 and 42 have significantly contributed to this, along with the rain and cold weather. The photos I have attached show the state of the road from outside nos 45 up to the alley between nos 42 and 44 (which is also in a poor state due to the construction traffic). I can only attach three, otherwise I would have shown the full road surface.
