  • I have just been over the same spot and the situation is getting worse. Like the original query, I too went over the same spot on Tuesday and, although there was a dip there is clearly something wrong. Having gone over it again, it is certainly deeper, to the extent I thought my car had been damaged.

    Can TfL please remediate this urgently as it is getting more dangerous for all road users the longer it is left. Thank you.
