Quality of repair work

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:45, Friday 5 March 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2589455.

Your contractors fill these potholes in every year as they have today. Unless they put a bitumen seal around the repair, the edges will simply deteriorate and the pothole will reappear within weeks.

Surely the council should check the quality of the work and only pay when the repair is completed to a high standard.
