Pot hole on Denchworth Road, next to Tinkerbush Lane alleyway, sounds like a gun shot/backfire with every car that passes heading towards double roundabout. Can hear it loud from inside a street away, currently about sat hear counting it 3-4 times every 20 seconds, has been going for about an hour. Much worse and more noticeable of late.

  • Quickly covered with asphalt, which just as quickly broke off as vehicles drove over and the manhole moved. 'Fix' lasted about 3 days.
