Large pothole in centre of carriageway

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 14:38, Thu 30 December 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3205640.

There is a large pothole approx 1 foot long by 3-4 inches deep after the railbridge on the southbound carriageway towards the centre of the road. This is dangerous as drivers avoiding the potholes on the bridge then have to take action to avoid this one. Whole section needs resurfacing properly and not patch up.

  • This still hasn’t been fixed and it is dangerous. The sidings are littered with cars tonight changing tyres. We hit it but luckily didn’t get a pop !!!

    There is also a smaller hole about 4 meters before it on the southbound lane so you swerve to miss that and hit the big one even though there is a cone opposite it !!!

  • I agree - this section of the road has been resurfaced many times in the form of it being patched up. It lasts around 3 weeks before the potholes open up again and is absolutely treacherous! The work being done simply cannot deal with the amount of traffic that passes over it. My car wheel was damaged 3 weeks ago just before Christmas. I see that the potholes are starting to open up yet again just in that short space of time. Not good enough.

  • Drove past on Monday morning - this pothole patch up is failing AGAIN... bits of tarmac on the road surface where it's breaking up at the edges. So that's lasted a grand total of 5 weeks...
