This pothole has been here for years. It has previously been part repaired but is now worse than ever and continues getting worse. There are many other potholes in the road, the whole road could do with re-surfacing, but this one is by far the worst. It poses a danger to pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, and could easily damage your car unless you go over it extremely slowly. The pothole is too wide to avoid it.

  • The pothole opposite 14 The Leys is getting wider, longer and deeper. We need to reverse throuh this pothole which has now resulted in damage to the tyre and steering mechanism of our car.

    It is not possible to avoid the pothole due to its size.
