Back to all reports

On 18 June you replied that someone would chase up Thames Water to fix this sunken repair/pothole. Nothing has happened. Please can you fix it and charge Thames Water? It is a massive hazard for cyclists and cars swerving around it on this busy junction.Large rectangular sunken pothole on site of previous mend The council say this is not their problem - if it is a Thames Water or other agency issue please can you request an urgent fix. This is a danger to cyclists as cars swerve round it and it can throw you off in middle of busy junction. I have reported it twice in last 6 months. It is the result of a botched patching after the water leak was fixed. Please can someone put a few buckets of tarmac in to make it safe?

  • I concur with all the above - still a big pothole in the middle of the junction + a danger to cyclists.

  • Pothole still there and getting worse. A massive hazzard as reported previously here and highlighted on Twitter yesterday. Seemingly no action since reported over 4 months ago!

  • Please please can you fix this pothole? It is so dangerous to have a huge pothole in the middle of a major junction, where people are looking at the traffic lights, not full attention on the road.
