Deep crack

Reported via iOS in the Pothole category anonymously at 12:49, Sunday 2 May 2021

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

There is a 3 or 4 inch deep crack in the road on the west side near where the indicator is on the map - it stretches out about 2 feet from the verge (bit difficult to define as these road edges are so badly defined now due to the additional traffic caused by the HS2 works). It’s a serious hazard for bikes and causes one to swerve out to the middle of the road and possibly into overtaking or oncoming traffic. Needs filling in urgently.

Also many of the verges on both sides of this road need urgent treatment as they have been seriously eroded by very heavy vehicles and buses - some local residents are now putting all sorts of plastic, wooden and stone debris in the hollows that have been carved out to try and prevent further erosion by the heavy traffic but this just increases the chance there will be a serious accident.

The road needs urgent repairing and would also benefit from having the police do something useful like take a day out and stop any heavy vehicle using the route and warn them they will be fined if they use it again.
