Rain water not reaching drain

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 19:04, Saturday 2 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3642533.

Due to continually retarmacked road the camber has changed. Over the past 6 -12 months, an area of the road has sunk and a large pothole has appeared. all theses issues combined means rain water running downhill no longer reaches the drain but floods the driveway bringing with it gravel and silt. I have to shovel this away regularly to allow dirt free access to my property. I have to brush the gravel towards the road in an attempt to direct the water towards the drain. Debris is also washed further downhill to outside neighbouring properties. Following heavy storms, large amounts of gravel are deposited near the junction of Pinfold Green. The amounts of loose gravel now appearing are an obvious road hazard particularly to motor cyclists. I have also recently witnessed the loose stones being 'flicked' up by passing traffic. Not only does the pothole require fixing but a form of ' gully' is required to direct water running downhill back towards the drain.
