This is a large and deep pothole in a place that is very difficult to avoid if there is a car coming uphill towards you , especially in the dark. It is capable of ding serious damage to a car and could cause a very dangerous accident for a cyclist. It is very difficult to see in the dark. There is another pothole further down the road which is not so bad but also needs fixing.
This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding a pothole/road surface.
During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and forces up the road surface in through cracks in the road surface.
Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.

We have completed our inspection of the issue and have made arrangements for it to be resolved within five working days.
