Road in shocking condition

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 22:20, Wednesday 5 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2709027.

The mill lane continues to remain in shocking and dangerous condition. A few weeks ago it was marked out with many yellow markers that we thought indicated major road repairs. Since then the majority of marks that must have taken some time to mark out have disappeared - what a waste of resource! Please fix this road it is dangerous, causing damage to vehicles and is not in an acceptable condition particularly towards Bugbrooke mill. The road is literally disintegrating away. This has been an ongoing issue for many months and years.
