Multiple potholes

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 16:02, Mon 8 November 2021

Sent to TfL 3 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3111587.

Multiple holes and damaged surface on central carriageway of A21 between Hilda Vale and Wellbrook. Lethal for 2 wheelers in dark and wet. Why do council let their main roads get in such a mess, and then take so long to repair them? Not much regard for Health and Safety here!

  • These are not minor potholes. They require urgent attention. If I thought they were minor, I would have reported them as such. They have also been there for some little time and will only get worse with the advent of winter weather. I would politely suggest you at least fill them without further delay! It would seem to me that there used to be some pride in keeping Londons road arteries in sound condition,....not any longer it seems!

  • Still waiting for a fix 2 weeks after reporting. What's the delay?
