These pot holes have grown since the initial report on ID 2157756 into 4 pot holes straight after each other, there might as well not be a road here... I have witnessed a bad crash of a motorbike because of them and you originally said you guys would've been out to fix this pot hole. How do we progress this to prevent it from getting worse?
