  • 6 months? This is a major pothole on a major route. Will cause car damage.

  • There are two 'pot holes' / road defects that mean it is unavoidable and unsurprisingly one or both wheels are hitting it. the 'hole' nearest the footpath (nearside for south bound traffic into town) is by far the worst. A trip to the Waendel leisure centre has cost me £60 to sort my tracking out - but I have to use the A509 every day and some times multiple times

  • There are 2 pot holes which means I have hit both wheels today I use this road every day for work and each time have to swerve into oncoming traffic

  • I went through 2 potholes on this road this morning, under 40 mph, and it has damaged the front suspension of my car. the pot holes are very deep, a car width apart, meaning you always hit them both. Please fix this urgently before more cars are dmamaged - thank you
