  • The two large dangerous potholes are still there, 90% of the time they are unavoidable due to parked vehicles or other traffic on the road. There are no markings around either pothole to say they have been looked at.

  • You can literally hide an elephant in these pot holes now. The road is unsafe to drive along especially at night. I'd like to see the report of the surveyor who signed off these pot holes "to be done in the next 6 months". I am pretty sure this document does not exist because no one would sign their name to leaving potholes as big as an elephant right next to a busy school. These pot holes have been massive for 6 months already. I'm afraid the road need to be shut now as a matter of urgency and you need to send a zoo keeper to come fish out all the trapped animals from these massive holes. YOU PEOPLE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. Fix the f******g holes.

  • Hello Northamptonshire Highways. Thank you for your reply stating that the inspector involved in assessing carriageways in my area, has said that the potholes poses no immediate safety defect. I am not sure what "no immediate safety defect" means. Can you please e-mail to me, under the freedom of information act, the written report that states that there is no immediate safety defect, the date of the report, and the name of the inspector. As mentioned in my previous message (ref elephants) I want to see the report with the signature or name before I believe you people think it's safe to have potholes the size of elephants next to a busy school crossing point. I look forward to your reply.
