  • This hole is growing larger - it is now >6cm deep and has built up a ridge >10cm. It lies on a piece of road that has been tarmaced over and looks like it is above a water main/pipe under the road, so I am concerned that further damage could cause damage to this.

    The diversion route has only been in place since yesterday morning so this needs to be looked at urgently as it is likely to worsen rapidly. I have called the Highways Team at the council to report it as an urgent issue and they have created a duplicate issue under the name "Pothole", logged at 16:12.

  • The road surface is visibly moving when buses drive over it.

  • This hole is lifting and collapsing very quickly due to the mass of the busses and other heavy vehicles passing over it every few minutes on a very harsh angle, please do something before it collapses into the filled drain below it!
