Recent resurfacing made road surface with ridges

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 20:42, Sat 19 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2804459.

Apprx 50 metres road resurfacing is so poorly finished, its much worse than had it been left alone. Its now got deep ridges and potholes mixed in. Whichever contractor made this work should not be paid until correctly rectified as its bad use of taxpayer's funds at this time. Additionally, I'd estimate a good 25% of the grit applied is wasted as its never going to be embedded in the road and will end up clogging the drains one heavy rain falls!

  • Thanks for the update. I appreciate you will monitor the situation. Whoever was the contractor though, I urge they should be challenged to make restitution. Making the contractor aware the standard is not good enough will ensure they understand and deliver better results in future as well as correct the mess they've left at this junction.

    Kind regards, Brian Chadwick
