This is a series of potholes (30+ in number)that have been growing in size and depth for several months to the point where damage to vehicles and bicycles tyres is often mentioned by residents and local users. Potholes are present along the whole length of Faraday road from junction with Christian Head to junction with Westgarth Avenue and cannot be avoided when driving or cycling along the road, very nearly came off bicycle today as nowhere to go except hit deep pothole when car overtook me. Has become a serious danger to all road users including pedestrians crossing the road from public car park at Christian Head and parking at Auction Mart. Potholes are mostly 1ft to 3 ft diameter and 2 - 6 inches depth though there are several deeper/shallower and larger/smaller adjoining them.
