Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:17, Sun 22 January 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4159218.

There are multiple large and deep potholes along this road, on both sides of the road which are becoming increasingly dangerous for cyclists, motorbikes, cars when they drive across the white line to avoid them! This road is used regularly by HGV Grain lorries, double trailer lorries with logs for Charles Jackson's Bio fuel unit in Station Road. Also HGV vehicles delivering materials to building sites and to the shops and businesses in the village. It needs major repair work to the verges and completely resurfacing. It has never been resurfaced for many years.

  • Investigation: Completed (Scheduled Maintenance) - Regarding the condition of this section of the road, we are pleased to confirm a works order has already been raised on an inspectors report and will be undertaken within six months’ time. We hope to attend sooner. 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.
