There are several potholes along a short length of road, some are quite deep though taking measurements hasn't been possible due to the volume of traffic. I would estimate that the deepest is several centimetres deep and at least 30 centimetres long. They have been there for several months at very least and are potentially dangerous for people crossing the road. Around the beginning of lockdown I fell one night crossing the road because of stepping on the edge of one pothole as they aren't clearly visible at that time of day. Fortunately there was almost no traffic, but I had scarcely managed to get back up - with a badly twisted ankle - and made it to the pavement before a double decker bus appeared. It could have been so much worse.
