Road needs resurfacing - pothole repair WILL NOT suffice as the whole road surface is degrading

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 11:00, Sunday 16 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2728909.

Road has been deteriorating for well over 2 years now due to the high volume of traffic using it including heavy buses, articulated lorries and farm vehicles - the current road surface is not good enough to support the sheer amount of vehicles using it and is getting worse by the day, damage to cars tyres and wheels is happening on a daily basis and motorists are forced to drive on the other side of the road to slalom round the road defects. Address the issue like you did further up Hayes Road several years ago and repair it PROPERLY and stop wasting our money with costly temporary repairs that fail within weeks.
