  • Hole getting exponentially bigger now. So deep right through to sub surface.

  • I measured the depth of this hole as 16cm yesterday and it is in a place where it is very difficult to avoid without danger to oncoming vehicles. Latest photo from 22nd May attached. It is an extreme hazard for cyclists. Please prioritise.

  • Northbound Lane pretty much blocked now. This hasn't even been marked for a fix yet and first reported 4 weeks ago. Very dangerous and damaging hole.

  • Despite being reported as being “investigated” nobody has been out or if they have they’ve not marked it. The hole is directly in front of a driveway and is so big to avoid it when exiting left (which you have to as it’s likely to shred tyres) you have to pull out into the opposite lane. This is extremely dangerous to cars and cyclists and needs urgent action.

  • This pothole was confirmed as reported to the council on 4th May and still nobody has been to look at it (no spray paint. A villager cycling past has 2wks ago fallen foul to it and when he came off his bike he has broken two ribs, a finger and sustained serious facial injuries (all documented). Recent heavy rain has made the hole even deeper pushing out large amounts of dangerous debris onto our drive and the road. What will it take for this to please be looked at as a priority?? 3 The Pleasance, Blewbury.

  • Thank you for your report. We have looked at it and found that it was a duplicate of an issue reported by another customer. We are attending over the next two days as part of the annual inspection, and any defects will be put in for repair.
