  • I also want to report this problem - car tyres have been damaged and now my exhaust is loose. The situation is worsening day by day - new potholes developing - this stretch of the road has been like this for months with no sign of any works to repair it.

  • LETHAL. If someone hits this at speed they could easily lose control of their vehicle. This is an accident waiting to happen and should be made a priority.

  • If this isn't attended to the Police will need to close the road!! The road edge has disintegrated and is unfit for cyclists and most cars now!!

  • Traffic has to drive on the wrong side of the road to avoid the potholes and sunken road. With the sun so low and in the drivers eyes, an accident is bound to happen. We are totally fed up with the state of this road.

  • Despite numerous reports this problem has still not been fixed. The sinking of the poor reinstatement has left a series of potholes 2 inches deep which are very dangerous.

  • I received an update to say this had been fixed although it definitely hasn’t and is getting worse day by day. People know the potholes are there and drive at their normal speed crossing onto the other side to avoid them despite the visibility being poor on the approach to East Challow. I’ve had a few near misses with people on my side of the road! Many cyclists use this road and it is extremely dangerous. I can’t understand why it hasn’t been addressed. The road needs complete resurfacing. Had it been addressed earlier a patch might have worked but it’s too far gone. Shocking lack of action!
