The surface has fail thus creating a slip and trip hazard to pedestrians and residents walking over it.over it

Reported via desktop in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 14:19, Thursday 25 January 2024

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5489840.

The surface is uneven, sank in some areas. Due to the surface of the tarmac failing this causes a slip hazard due to loose grit forming. Due to the uneveness of the surface levels this causes a trip hazard. This has been previously reported and marked as 'Work completed' by yourselves. I can assure you no work has been done, not even surveyed. The area in question is between the curb and boundary of properties of 78 and 80 Kimbolton Road, Higham Ferrers NN10 8HS.
