Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 19:22, Tuesday 13 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5573223.

Unsurprisingly the section of road heading out of town from the pedestrian crossing is/has deteriorated to the point where using the opposite side of the carriageway is safer.

It is 2024 a.d. this section of road resembles road from 2024 b.c. do the right thing and forget this patchwork approach just resurface properly.

  • At the very minimum URGENT (within 30 days) temporary repairs/patching is needed as a short term mitigation.

    Please can this be dealt with as a PRIORITY as the situation is only getting worse as the road continues to deteriorate.

    You as the Council have a responsibility for road safety/repairs and so far, the lack of action could be considered negligence by the Council. Please sort it out.

  • This road is an absolute disgrace. It's been bad for years, but due to very poor patch jobs, it just deteriorates again. This Council is a shining example of why they are so utterly pointless, can't even manage simple tasks properly. Driving on the counties roads you spend more time looking for pot holes so you don't damage your vehicle. In a county with already high accident/fatality rates, it might be an idea to at least make an effort to make them safer to drive on. It's about time insurance companies came after you following accidents. Gross negligence at the very least.

  • Are you aware this is outside a school, so drivers are having to swerve to avoid potentially damaging their vehicle, which in turn increases the risk of a child being hit. I assume the Council are aiming to make the roads unsafe in any way they can.

  • Is there a reason why one side of the road has been done, but the other which heads towards the A43 around the pedestrian crossing and outside the care home has been left untouched? How blinkered are the people that are sent out? Another example of the poor communication, and even worse use of funds as this will require a separate visit. Honestly, just have the teams open their eyes and sort all the pot holes they can see. There are plenty of them!
