Sort out these potholes before someone dies what is going on!

Is it genuinely going to have to take someone loosing control over the bridge and maybe filling into the carriageway below before you lot actually do something?!

It’s disgusting! They are not even pothole now the whole road surface is gone. It’s like a third world farmers lane. Highly dangerous and the council have had repeated reports and complaints for years now. About time you replaced them shocking companies you use to ‘repair’ (literally slinging tar in and burning the top with a bit of heat - they don’t even press I watched them fill one outside my house about six months ago).

As if I pay council and car tax for nothing to be done and for the roads to remain a risk to people.

  • The roundabout surface at the junction of the A509 and A14, is a disgrace. For a busy interchange, the service is dangerous. It is impossible to avoid potholes and ruts, a serious risk to everyone using it.

  • There is a problem with the A509 exit on A14 Roundabout at Junction 9 when heading towards Wellingborough. The road that exits the roundabout joins the A14 exit to Wellingborough becoming a two lane road. This filters into a single lane about 100m further along. Allowing both lanes of traffic exiting the roundabout and A14 to filter into a single lane further along without stopping.

    However, not only has the road become badly potholed, but ALL the road marking have worn away and are no longer visible. This has lead to traffic exiting the roundabout not realising neither traffic has right-of-way. So less knowledgeable drivers exciting roundabout assume it a single lane and they have right-of-way. Most days when I do the school run, when I exit the A14 onto A509 heading to Wellingborough. Traffic exiting the roundabout cuts across me into my lane forcing me to brake violently. As they do not stay in their lane assuming I have to Giveway. Instead of filtering in 100m further along the road.

    Please address this before there a bad accident involving children.
