Potholes/ very poor road condition

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by John Richmond at 22:04, Wednesday 26 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2751797.

Time and time again I have reported the state of this road, and yet - beyond belief - apparently the road and its multiple deep potholes are not bad enough to warrant repair. What is it going to take? A crash? A large insurance claim? The section of Stoke Road between the junction by the Old Crown Pub to the perimeter of Ashton village isn’t acceptable! Please do a proper site visit if you don’t believe me (and the many others who have already raised this to your attention). Photo’s will follow and I will keep reporting this until you schedule it to be fixed and appropriately repaired. Thanks.
