Multiple Deep Potholes & Rutting of Road Surface

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 00:22, Monday 8 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2532485.

The whole stretch of road surface from the Dalscote turning off the greenway down to the junction with Gayton road leading into Eastcote needs completely resurfacing and the sub base needs improving to cope with the weight of modern farming vehicles & equipment ad well as the traffic level the road experiences.

As the photos show the road has multiple potholes most of which are very deep, and there is also a huge amount of rutting and uneven cambers on the road which is evidenced by the large build up of puddles as shown in the pictures.

The state of the road is now severely dangerous particularly to cyclists, runners and pedestrians and even more so at night.

If i were to personally experience personal injury or damage to my bike or car as a result of the condition of this road I would be taking legal action against the council and highways for compensation and reimbursement of any costs incurred as a result.

The road is a popular short stretch for cyclists and runners and also used as a regular walking route for local residents. in addition to a new road surface it would also benefit from some street lighting between the two junctions.

  • Many more residents of Dalscote & Eastcote have complained to Pattishall Parish Councillors in recent weeks and months about the appalling condition of the whole of this road from ‘What three words’ locations ‘slowness, conspired, baking’ to ‘allow, facing, foggy’ . The condition of this road is arguably the worst in the county if not the country! The dreadful state of repair of this road has been regularly reported for many years and only 3 or 4 minor patches have been carried out during this lengthy period. Action is required without further delay...P Parris - Pattishall Parish Councillor
