Poor drainage and heavy rain in winter floods this road

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 09:09, Mon 6 December 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3161871.

This location is notorious for poor and ineffective drainage leading to flooding of the road. The drains are now overwhelmed once again by moderate rainfall and flooded pools on both sides of the road meet in the middle eventually forming a large deep pool. There are two large slabs of concrete to the south side of the road at this location which are clearly causing a blockage problem.
