Pothole on Busy high st on bus cycle lane

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 07:55, Thu 16 December 2021

Sent to TfL 4 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3183009.

This pothole has increased gradually over the last 6 weeks. Now it is extremely dangerous for cyclists. It is getting worse by the day. Double decker buses go over it every 5 minutes making the hole larger each time. It seems like that patch work was done not too long ago but clearly was not done properly and now it is breaking awa.y there is also so another manhole 2m in front as you can see from the picture. this is also sinking away. both works should be done at the same time. This should be prioritised being a very busy High Street and bus lane and frequented by cycles

  • This has been fixed . To such a poor standard as it has made no difference to the vibration of the manhole and no difference to the very load noise every time a vehicle passes over it. Who is getting pad to so called fix this.0/10

  • This is the third time this has been "fixed." As I explained, you cannot simply put tarmac on it. The whole substructure of the man hole is collapsing. You just pass this job to sub contractors who are paid minimum wage and have no accountability to you. Or, TfL has an incompetant work froce and management structure. Whicg is it?
