Agreed, this is a very nasty pothole, shortly before the sign for the Botley A34 junction 1/2 mile. It takes up almost the whole width of the inside lane of the carriageway - I'm surprised this has been allowed to remain unattended to for such a long time, given it's in a position where you can hit it at 70mph on a major dual carriageway, which is quite a dangerous position to be in with the potential risk of tyre blow-out. When you do hit it, it causes an almighty thud which judders throughout the whole car and always worries me about tyres/suspension damage; consequently you see a lot of last-minute swerving to avoid it.
