There is a substantial, long and deep pothole on the approach to this junction.
This is a junction with a history of serious and fatal collisions.
The defect is of a size and nature that is likely to cause serious injury to a motorcyclist and will cause substantial distraction to all road users as they approach this junction.
This is a dangerous breach of the council's statutory to maintain the road network. A failure of this size and nature can only mean that it was not adequately assessed. As well as quick remedial action, there needs to be an investigation as to why it was allowed to deteriorate to this extent.
Thank you for your enquiry. We have investigated your report and it has been actioned to be fixed.
State changed to: Action scheduled

Why has been allowed to get so bad, we just had to make an emergency stop to try and avoid it. This needs attention before there is a serious accident on a bike or in a car
