When turning left onto Uxbridge road at the traffic lights on the A406 at Ealing Common, there is evidently a massive hole in the road surface which I hit with my nearside wheel this evening. Very difficult to pick it up in the dark.

  • Very deep pot hole at this junction still present. It is sufficiently deep to potentially damage a tyre at low speed turning left onto the Uxbridge Road. It is now so large that it is not possible to avoid without swerving into the next lane of traffic.

  • After logging via the Ealing Council website, found out that this comes under TFL for maintenance. They duly passed to TFL and I had an acknowledgement of this case via email today.

    At lunchtime, I popped over to see the hole in daylight. The attached pic shows the depth of the hole and how cables have become exposed too as the tarmac/shingle has been worn away. It looks as if this was a rather unsuccessful patch job. I also took some video of the cars hitting the hole. Suspect there must be some damage being incurred considering the volume of traffic going over this hole!
