Back to all reports

Station road, on the East direction lane (towards Rushden). Large pot holes. One over 12” long, 6” wide and 3-4” deep.

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2531651.

These pot holes have been repaired previously, badly, and all are now larger than before. They have now been present for over a month and are growing in size daily due to their position and amount of traffic. In the rain, they is virtually invisible. Being a blood rider, I can confidently say that either of the larger 2 would easily throw a motorcycle rider off their machine, into the oncoming traffic, and is only a matter of time before someone is badly injured or worse. The largest is toward the off side of the road, along with several smaller holes. The 2nd largest being towards the near side of the road.
