Pothole Needs Fixing

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 10:30, Wed 10 March 2021

Sent to TfL 6 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS2598763.

I was cycling down Seven Sisters Road yesterday evening when my bike fell into a pothole, tipped forward and threw me over onto the road. The pothole was next to a drain and full of water so not visible, but must have been several inches deep. There was a bus just behind me, and luckily I just about managed to get up and get out of the road before the oncoming bus hit me. I have attached a link below to the location on Google Maps. It was by a drain just before the bridge going over New River Path. According to your website this part of the road is part of Hackney:


Please can you keep me informed as to what you are doing to fix this, as this is really dangerous. If I'd been a bit slower in being able to get up and out of traffic I could have been killed. Thank you
