I couldn't take a photo from the car today but there are three large potholes spread too widely across the road to avoid. There was one last week - two are new after the weekend I think. I cycle and drive this route and they are large enough to cause damage to suspension - approx 25 cms deep maybe. I can attest that they are also dangerous for cyclists - adding an extra difficulty to avoiding the lorries on the route Thanks

  • The pothole since has become even deeper and it poses a huge risk for both cyclists and motorists. It is over 10 cms deep and is impossible to get around it.

  • I drove through this as I couldn't avoid it and it punctured my tyre. Very expensive
