Numerous Pot Holes again, same place as last 3 times

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 19:07, Wednesday 26 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2751529.

This pot holes were fixed in November 2020 and the repair fell out within 3 months and we are back to the same situation again, with our house shaking every time the bus goes past. These have been repaired 3 times in the last 3 years and not to do these repairs properly is a waste of tax payers money. We cannot wait another 6 months for these to be repaired and are really concerned about the structural damage this is doing to our home and we will escalate this if not sorted out properly this time.

  • Please tell me you are not going to repair the smallest hole and leave the others, which are 10 yards away and much larger. Every time a large vehicle goes past our house shakes. This needs fixing now before we escalate the matter.
