  • These potholes were only filled about a year ago so, not a cost effective repair. Agree entirely with comments about tyre and suspension busting, some over 100 mm, and danger as vehicles cross the middle of the road, into oncoming traffic, to avoid the potholes. 4 months is too long, these need attention immediately!
