Series of potholes on exit from A43, causing danger

Reported in the Pothole category by Dave Gaster at 15:36, Wed 21 August 2019

There are a number of potholes as you exit the A43, with a few on the opposite side. Driving round them could cause an accident, as drivers avoid in the opposite direction. Not massive, but likely to cause an accident.

Council ref: ENQ19841021

  • There are eight + defects in a row, while any one may not the intervention criteria, the combined effect is like an extreme rumble strip, causing damage to cars and to the road. This amplification of damage should be considered as dangerous. Council ref: ENQ19841021

  • There are a large number of pot holes stretching right across the lane on a heavily used road. They are likely to cause damage to cars.

  • This has been bad for 4 months and is getting worse. There is a large hole going towards the roundabout and multiple coming off it. If you get 2 cars avoiding this at the same time you could easily cause a head on collision.

  • This may have been assessed back in August but it has been getting steadily worse. I'm shocked that nothing has been done despite repeated reports.
