This seems to be a utility trench, where the tarmac has given way, hundreds of cars and lorries go over this every day to and from work. Our vehicles are getting damaged. there is absolutely no way to avoid crossing it as it go's right across the road. It is several inches deep in places!

My company I work for were thrilled to bits that I had found a solution to this severe problem. Thankyou Fix My Street!
