Hi there, there is a rather large and dangerous pothole in the cycle lane here that has grown quite large with all the rain recently, I guessitmate it to be 12 inches wide and around 3 deep, more than enough to unseat a rider into the traffic that thunders past here, you cannot navigate the cycle lane without meeting this hole! ITS HUGE! Please fill it up ASAP.

  • The entire lane needs completely worked on, its badly degraded, the paint is fading and there are 2 large drainage covers in the lane itself to navigate round too. all its going to take is one inattentive driver drifting a few inches left, and someone is maimed or killed here, its THAT serious.

  • Still not fixed, the paint is deteriorating quite badly now too, the pothole has grown, and the various metal surfaces for utility hatches, now have sunk into the tarmac and also have many holes, absolutely ridiculously dangerous to have to try and navigate round these with the f*cking M8 thundering past at your elbow, why don't YOU try this out, you will sh*t your pants here too.

  • 4 months and nothing done, the potholes are much bigger, deeper and wider now, what will it take for a fix, a death?? A serious injury. Thanks for making this so very unsafe and doing NOTHING for 4 months. Total joke.
