Massive trench in the middle of the road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 11:32, Tue 2 February 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2518663.

The road has just been repaired and this trench has opened up immediately afterwards. This is at the bottom of a hill and would definitely result in the death of a cyclist.

  • The hole has renewed and also a new one appeared. This is causing disruption sleeping from as early as 4am every day, dangerous to cross the road and traffic accident hazard. URGENT WORKS ARE REQUIRED ASAP!!!!

  • Road workers been last night but neither of the trenches were fixed - heavy trucks still falling in them and causing crazy amount of noise and shaking the whole building. When could this be resolved please?
