Pot holes on side of road

Reported in the Potholes category anonymously at 09:08, Friday 12 April 2019

Sent to Solihull Borough Council 2 minutes later

These potholes have been here for at least 12 months and are now beyond dangerous they are a threat, in my opinion to pedestrians and drivers. There are a number of large, deep potholes on the edge of the road. The road is also a double bend. The holes are extremely dangerous both to the motorist and the pedestrian. In a car the problem is that you need to move off the road to get past an oncoming vehicle or walkers. The road is not wide enough to allow both vehicles to pass without moving off road and the potholes are there you cannot avoid them. As a pedestrian these pot holes are even more dangerous, especially when it has rained as they fill up with water and you don't know that there is a hole beneath them. It being a double bend is not an ideal spot for these type of road problems. In fact, it compounds the issue as oncoming traffic is blind to there being people/other cars there.
