  • The pothole has still not been fixed and is deteriorating rapidly. As mentioned above it is not only a danger to cyclists but also vehicles trying to avoid the hole forcing them onto the oncoming side of the road.

  • This needs to be fixed. Car made a huge bang when i hit it in the dark last night. Was expecting a puncture but didn’t get one, the next person may not be so lucky

  • It appears that this pothole has not been filled since being reported in May of this. I drove over it last night (23rd October_ and experienced a crack from the front nearside wheel and the rear nearside wheel. I had a flat this morning and after taking the car to the garage both nearside wheels as well as tyres are damaged and are now being sent for inspection. I was furious as this is perhaps the 12th wheel/tyre damage in the last few years. I returned to the site today and measured the hole. It is 4 inches deep and in addition to the cost to me this is incredibly dangerous for cyclists and motorcyclists. I have born the cost of the above 12 punctures and wheel damage but I refuse to let this pass without making a claim. This was reported 5 months ago and is incredibly dangerous.
