Pothole getting worse & deeper & no way to avoid as roadworks opposite & single lane so you cannot avoid the pothole & due to stopping & starting traffic & you can’t drive round it as traffic queues the other side of the very busy road it has deepened. I have replaced my tyre as I keep getting bulges & mechanic said probably caused by a pothole & this is the one I go over most so it’s starting to affect peoples cars
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 creates 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 two working days.
