    Have just spoken on phone to report this pothole as dangerous. My motorcycle suffered £2,000 in damage on Monday 31st May as both wheels need to be replaced. The hole is right on the line for a motorcyclist, and will not be seen if the bike is following a vehicle. Ruler in picture is 30 cm ruler. The hole is 8 cm deep.Ian Fielder,

  • This pothole is horrendous. Reading earlier comments, I cannot understand why this has not been repaired. It is situated on the bend of the road in Gagingwell so very hard to avoid. A peaceful drive through the countryside Bank Holiday Monday 31 May 2021, turned into a big upset with my front wheel going down this hole. The cost of keeping a car on the road is expensive enough, without incurring extra costs due to damage from badly maintained roads.
