Kings heath shop area road pothole issue

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 18:37, Friday 14 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2726693.

Leading up from the roundabout the potholes get worse up Park Drive and pose a risk to vehicles and property as the potholes themselves are widening very quick given the past few weeks. Taking either a left or a right on South Oval reveals even worse conditions that urgently needs rectifying.

  • I’d like to give an update as you drive up Park Drive towards the shops when you get to the top either turn left or turn right the potholes in the Rhône are absolutely atrocious the council sent a cup sub contractor in to fix some holes they close the road for a day and filled in 4 to 6 potholes on Park Drive if you was to open eyes you would know the majority of the problem is On the west Oval and South Oval I don’t know how nobody has twisted or broken ankle juice to these potholes I would suggest that the council get off the backside and actually look on these two roads before there is a serious injury

  • Thank you for your further comments. We understand that you feel that the road surface is still in poor condition. Whilst we appreciate and sympathise with your comments, we can confirm all potholes that met repair criteria have been resolved. However, please be assured that we will continue to monitor the area as part of our routine inspections. With regard to the general condition of the road itself; we do understand that it could benefit from resurfacing works in the future. Regrettably, this will not take place during this current financial year due to the budget for the scheme list being fully allocated. Please be assured; however, that we will include this for consideration in future years’ funding. Until then, any safety defects that are identified on the carriageway in the meantime, will be safely patched and repaired to keep the road serviceable.
