General condition of road surface between Hartwell and Hanslope.

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Mr Anthony G Mobley at 22:29, Friday 30 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2700552.

The road has deteriorated with potholes along the entire stretch stated. The road forms part of Sustrans no.6 cycle route. I was cycling along this road on 22nd April 2021on my electric bike when I hit a pothole and punctured my rear tyre and the force of hitting it bent the rim of the wheel. I live within quarter of a mile of this section of road so know it well and have to pick my way to miss all the holes which can be very dangerous. I have complained to Hartwell Parish Council many times but little gets done often getting no further than the painting of white lines around a few of the worst holes. This time I hope something gets done as the repair of my wheel which contains the electric motor could prove expensive Yours A Mobley.
