  • Issue is unresolved on Friday 5 Jan. Large pothole immediately north of junction on northbound side South Lambeth Road is quite a serious risk to all road users including cyclists (I almost fell off hitting it yesterday morning in the dark).

  • Very dangerous I agree. I was forced to swerve to avoid broken up surface whilst on my motorcycle this morning.

  • Water leak now appears to have been fixed, although the temporary road repairs still need to be made permanent.
