What on Earth is this?

Reported via iOS in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Neil the Potholeman at 21:52, Tue 18 April 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4458331.

These lights have been up for months, costing a fortune. Vehicles are forced to drive off road to negotiate this stretch of road. How on earth can you defend an insurance claim incurred here? When will this be repaired or the road closed?

  • An ‘ecological issue’??? Please elaborate, as this defect has been there for many months, and the poor traffic management has now caused significant damage to the surrounding carriageway and verge, just increasing any repair cost.

  • Getting worse and worse by the week. Costing more and more by the week. another splendid example of highway asset-mismanagement at the hands of NNC.
