The A428 from Turvey to Brackmills roundabout Northampton full of potholes just waiting for a major accident this road was resurfaced only last year. I use this road daily to go to work and trying to avoid these potholes is impossible...

Investigation: Completed (Scheduled Maintenance) - Firstly, we are very sorry to hear of the incident you have reported. We can confirm a works order has already been raised and work will commence on fixing defects on the 6th of February. With regard to the general condition of the road itself; we do understand that it could benefit from resurfacing works in the future. Regrettably, this will not take place during this current financial year due to the budget for the scheme list being fully allocated. Please be assured; however, that we will include this for consideration in future years’ funding. Until then, any safety defects that are identified on the carriageway in the meantime, will be safely patched and repaired to keep the roads serviceable.
