You can see from the photo, the road surface is breaking into blocks and some are missing, leaving bad holes. The manhole cover looks like it will fall apart soon. This is a busy junction with heavy traffic and a good number of bicycles.

  • This was repaired extremely quickly! I went by two days later and it was being worked on, then the next day you couldn't tell there had been a problem. Full marks!
