Potholes on the A13/Abbott road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 19:05, Tue 23 November 2021

Sent to TfL 2 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3140123.

Pot holes on the red route on the A13 near Abbott road traffic lights just before you enter Abbott road via A13.

There are 2 massive pot holes with are extremely dangerous and need to be filled up immediately. I am always having to driving with caution while leaving the A13 to go on Abbott Road as that is a daily route for me.

Loads of cars are unaware of the 2 pot holes so close next to each other and have hit their cars due to the pot holes.

I would like to request that these pot holes be filled up immediately as this is a hazard for drivers including a bus that regularly is using that route
