Break up of road surface

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Philip Clode at 22:52, Tuesday 23 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2567973.

The road surface has broken up to create a gravel like top surface almost likely a newly load road with fresh gravel thrown down, and presents the same skid risk.

I have already seen two vehicles overshoot the stop line at the T-junction. This junction is notorious for nasty accidents due to the speed of travel of cars on the road from the A43 roundabout.

Issue has been evident since last cold snap, about 3-4 weeks.
