Settlement and land slippage

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 10:06, Wednesday 26 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3267793.

Both approaches to the existing railway bridge are showing significant settlement and the early signs of failure. This is exacerbated by the use of heavy goods vehicles and will inevitably result in failure which could affect not only the road but the railway itself. I would suggest that the settlement cracks are filled to prevent water/frost ingress and weight restrictions are applied to the road to minimise further damage

  • Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways. We are very aware of the settlement issues, which are being addressed by Network Rail. Network Rail carried out ground investigations in November 2021 to enable a design to be developed to repair the embankment. Unfortunately we don’t have a date of the works yet, but are in contact with Network Rail for regular updates.
