I reported this large pothole two or three years ago. It was repaired but inadequately, as it has opened up again in the last couple of months

  • I believe this pothole was repaired at the end of June 2019 but the heavy rain of the last few days (mid-August) has washed away the repairs, revealing a large hole forcing cars to go towards the middle of the road
