  • These potholes are extremely dangerous.

    The largest one is at least half a foot deep. If a cyclist goes into it they will almost certainly crash and dismount. This could be fatal given how busy Widmore Road usually is.

    Thames Water currently have parts of Widmore Road shut off due to roadworks on another issue, so now would be a perfect time for works to commence with the least disruption.

  • I see some attempt has been made to fill the large holes, but I hope this was to provide a temporary fix because if not, it looks to be a very shabby fix.
