Huge pothole

The biggest of a series of potholes on or near the bend. This is the largest of all of them, and exceeds the required criteria for being a defect requiring repair, it is deeper than 40 mm and larger in diameter than 150 mm, not that I should have to prove this, however another report for a pothole here was supposedly checked and that status changed to ‘no further action’ on 6th June 2018, as apparently; “Thank you for your enquiry. I have visited the site and assessed the problem that you have identified. Unfortunately it doesn't meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor this during our routine inspections.”

It’s dangerous for several reasons, being on a corner where cars can swerve to avoid it, or hit it and react or it unsettles the car, it’s dangerous to avoid it due to the over grown grass verge and lack of vision on a double white line. Considering how many accidents happened here recently, I would suggest every effort is made to make this stretch of road as safe as possible.
