Potholes again

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 08:27, Monday 19 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5597002.

You may well have filled some of the potholes on the Headlands but from Glebe Avenue to Broadway it is still dangerous. Drivers are still swerving to miss them and they are dangerous to both bikes and motorbikes. Wouldn’t it be good if prevention was better than leaving them to get to your required depth before fixing them, common sense would surely say fix one road at a time leaving no potholes to come back to. Perhaps you could also return to fix the potholes on Bishops Drive that have been left. Thank you.

  • Please can more details be provided by the Council about why this has been categorised as not urgent and therefore can be left until July?

    If this road has been inspected it would be very obvious the entire road surface has failed and as soon as we get heavy rain the potholes deteriorate further as more of the road surface is washed away.

    There is no way this road can be left in its current state until July as there will be little road left to repair by then. It really needs urgent attention now as there are some huge potholes which will cause damage and mean cars now drive down the middle of the road to avoid them which is creating more risk of accidents.

    I strongly urge the priority of these road repairs are re-assessed and some temporary repairs are made ASAP to the worst of the potholes; of which there are many all along Headlands currently.

  • There are a series of dangerous potholes along the length of the Headlands between the junctions of Broadway/Queensberry roads and Hawthorn Road. These have been here for many weeks and have been ignored. This is a busy road with school children, commuters, busses and fire engines and this is a seriously dangerous problem. When is this going to be rectified?
