Tree roots have been lifting the tarmac here for years. Now it is very bad. My wife has a broken leg and so I am pushing her in a wheelchair - this is a very difficult place to get past, and I am tempted if there are no buses coming to push in the bus lane. It's also difficult on a bike (going westwards) because just when one needs to be looking back to see traffic, in order to merge, one also needs to be looking at the pavement surface.
