This pothole is expanding rapidly. I’ve hit it twice on my way home. Dangerous to cyclists and motorcyclists especially.

Pothole now 3 feet long. Needs fixing asap

This needs fixing asap, it has gone through through the asphalt surface and all the lose gravel underneath is being dug out on a daily basis. Its at least a couple of inches deep now and would easily throw a cyclist or motorcyclist from their bikes or buckle a wheel if a car fell into this crater

This pothole nearly threw me off of my bike the other day. It is in an extremely dangerous location. It needs repairing as soon as possible as it it dangerous to cyclists and especially motorist who swerve onto the other side of the road to avoid it, in a location where it is a blind bend. I notice it hasn't been marked up for identification yet. Please could you escalate it.

This is getting deeper by the day. This is now urgent. Vehicles are having to drive across the white lines into oncoming traffic to avoid this

I am staggered that this pothole has not been repaired around 7 weeks after first being reported. It is so deep now that it will stop a motorcycle in its tracks almost certainly killing or seriously injuring the rider. If this is not repaired as a matter of utmost urgency and someone is injured or worse as a result I would hope that the council be sued for their complacent negligence.

PLEASE fix this "pothole" ASAP! It is a danger to life on this road and has been reported numerous times with NO action!!

If this isn’t fixed within a week, i will be taking the council to court under the grounds of health and safety, failure to carry out their responsibilities to maintain sound road surfaces for public safety. Failing to make good after being told numerous times of the continued degradation of the pothole in question. Failure to act upon public guidance upon the council’s recommendations to advise of failures in road conditions at the earliest opportunity to enable them to rectify before an accident occurs. Taking my council tax, road fund licence tax and not using it for purpose.

This pothole was reported to the council 8 weeks ago - does this make the council liable for injury claims & claims for damage to bike/motorbike & vehicle? The pothole is incredibly deep & serious dangerous - on a narrow unlit road & on a bend - please prioritise repair as risk to life for cyclists, motorbikes & increasingly dangerous for car drivers trying to avoid pothole. Will cause serious damage to vehicles too.
