Very deep, sharp pothole in road. Instant complete puncture last night.

The street is not lit, and the pothole is full of rainwater. It is very deep, and has a very sharp straight edge that completely deflated my tyre instantly, when I drove over it in the dark last night. I was well below the speed limit.

Council ref: ENQ19826036

  • This hole is 120mm deep, 450mm long and 300mm wide. It will cause a major injury to cyclists and motorcyclists who will be thrown off their bikes if they hit this pothole particularly in the dark with no street lights. As it is a hazard to life, it should warrant an urgent repair with the highest priority.
