Large number of potholes on road outside The Old Bell

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 20:43, Wed 26 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2751698.

Have previously reported this series of potholes which spread over one side of the carriageway under reference 2746462. Within 24 hours you replied "Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of Rugby Road; specifically, you feel the surface has multiple pothole that present a hazard. Whilst we appreciate your comments, we have carried out a review of this matter and can confirm that there are no immediate safety concerns relating to this issue that warrant further investigation or repair at this time." Clearly no inspection has taken place or you would have seen the size and spread of the holes and that they are several layers of road surface deep. I have attached photos of this. Please see fit to repair this main road through the village which is in a poor state or repair along it's full length.
