Huge Pothole & Massive Puddle / Flooding

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:35, Thursday 15 September 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3827428.

There is a huge pothole by the entrance to the field which is also the access point for a footpath.

As seen in the photos the pothole is so large and deep that when there is heavy rain it causes a massive puddle and flooding and you are forced to walk through it when using the footpath.

The turning can also not be used by vehicles as a passing point due to the severity of the pothole.

The pothole needs repairing and resurfacing and either a drain installing or a way of channelling surface water to the nearby ditch needs to be installed.
