Large depression and sunken manhole cover on left hand side of the lane to go straight ahead. This is over 50mm deep

Reported via mobile in the Loose / Raised/Sunken category anonymously at 15:14, Tuesday 6 September 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3807091.

The road was resurfaced recently but the manhole cover does not appear to be adequately supported and the tarmac has sunk around it and is raised beyond. It is where the nearside wheels of busses pass over it. I reported it previously but you advise that no further action is required. I believe a heavy vehicle could cause the section of road to fail with serious consequences.
