Two potholes on Stanstead road, as one is heading towards Forest Hill from central Catford. At bus stop just past Rathfern Road turning (on LHS). One of the potholes is about half a metre in diameter. It’s huge. The other alongside it is smaller but just as dangerous. The type of surface issue that could kill a cyclist. There is also a manhole cover that is not completely flat. This is an urgent repair.
