Pothole has been here for some time. Hard to avoid when cycling as runs width of road. Dangerous position on junction corner. Can be found on corner of Westmorland Avenue when turning into Northumberland Avenue from Turnfurlong Lane direction.
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.

Please be assured, we will continue to monitor the area in line with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.
