Two large potholes in centre of Orchard St in Drayton near sharp bend with Holden Grove. Someone painted white lines so people can swerve to avoid them but even those lines are disappearing as the holes get bigger everyday. This road is in a terrible state and needs complete resurfacing like School Street. You can only patch the patches a million times before you should give up and do it properly.
