There are 2 deep potholes on the roundabout

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 11:48, Mon 1 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3096952.

There are 2 deep potholes on the roundabout, between the Rockingham Road entry point and the Market Harborough Bypass, northbound (towards Leicester). It is difficult to see them and avoid when travelling around the roundabout and the depth of them causes the car to knock suspension and steering. On a motorcycle these potholes are simply dangerous and a serious accident could occur resulting in injury.

  • I would sincerely hope that the repairs are actioned a lot sooner than 26 weeks. The holes are dangerous to all vehicles, and motorcycles in particular. If a motorcyclist hit one of these potholes they could lose control of the motorcycle and injury would occur.
