General highway condition from Moreton Pinkney to Chacome Lodge Farm

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 13:51, Thu 10 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2782578.

General highway condition from Moreton Pinkney to Chacome Lodge Farm is very poor due to: - dangerously deteriorated sections where tyres are under stress and neglected for many, many years. - subsidence due to heavy traffic loads (due to several times a day deliveries from heavy flour mill vehicles travelling from Bugbrooke) - some subsidence is dangerous and could lead to loss of control - failed surfaces - un-treated pot holes - failing prior repairs - faded road markings - there are no "load limits" to the usage of this road despite significant damage to the highway over the years. - it is uncyclable and dangerous on a motorcycle.

This section of highway stretches from Moreton Pinkney to Chacome Lodge Farm on the B4525 and has been in a very poor state of repair and overall condition for many, many years.

There are sections of other villages in South Northants that are very manicured where even minor road blemishes have been treated, but the highway that stretches from Moreton Pinkney to Chacome Lodge Farm on the B4525 is thoroughly and chronically neglected.

THERE ARE DANGEROUS SECTIONS TO THIS ROAD THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED BY THE COUNCIL BEFORE THERE IS AN ACCIDENT. The council have many records of reports of damage to this section of road over many years and it is unlikely the Council leaders would avoid liability if there was loss of life.
