Drastically worsened potholes on junction

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 00:22, Tuesday 9 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2534837.

There have been potholes here for some time, but they have worsened significantly with the recent weather. The condition of the road is now atrocious with deep potholes and crumbling surface in places. Absolutely impossible to avoid from all directions owing to the number and severity and not being able to see oncoming traffic to pass safely. Really dangerous and only a matter of time before a collision occurs when cars swerve to avoid these, or hit them at speed.

  • A very deep pothole has developed here. My car wheels banged over it loudly yesterday. You can't avoid it because of oncoming traffic. There will be a collision here at this very busy junction with people swerving to avoid it.

  • This needs fixing urgently, in the next week at the latest. The hole is more than a foot deep. Someone on a bike or motorbike could be killed here. So action it now. This was first reported 3 months ago !

    I have had both my front and rear alloys cracked by this pothole. I pay road tax and now I have to pay £100 for both front and back tyres.

  • Another tyre needed as a result of this pothole which has been reported since back in February. This is now extremely dangerous at a junction in the road and is only a matter of time before something more serious than a tyre is the victim. Sort it out, please!
