  • The hole was filled roughly last week but it looks like a temporary fix- The surface wasn’t finished. The temporary filling is already wearing off again and there are many small holes in the surface surrounding the main hole. It needs to be fixed properly. In its current state it’s very dangerous to cyclists and the condition appears to be deteriorating quickly. The ground still vibrates when large vehicles pass over it. Needs to be fixed properly as a matter of urgency. Thank you

  • Still not resolved. Very dangerous to vehicles and cyclists. The ground vibrates strongly when busses and lorries go into it.
