  • I also had the misfortune to find this crater late at night Christmas Day. Resulting in a buckled wheel and ruined tyre. At the same time a recovery vehicle was collecting yet another victim at exactly the same spot.

  • Hole now has two road cones inside it, care needs to be taken as width of road has effectively been reduced in half. Unsure if placed by council officials or a well meaning member of public, but at least identifies hazard to all.

  • These potholes must now be deemed as Cat 1 24 Hours yet they have been outsating for more than 2 weeks. The only safe way to travel Oakley Rd/Pipewell Rd is in the centre of the carrigeway with the potential of coliding with another vehicle. And pothole O/S No 3 is now so big the cone has disapeared in it !
