Huge Pothole on the Westway

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 13:17, Wed 2 March 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3356187.

Police involved CAD 6135 and 7736 01/03. Huge pothole blew my front passenger tyre, cracked my alloy and damaged my back passenger tyre at 19:06. Apparently pothole has been there for a while. I was sat for 7.5 before a recovery vehicle was able to get to me. I reached my home at 4:10am. I want to make a claim against TFL for damages to my vehicle. I have many more photos. I saw at least 9 cars with similar issues

  • It would be useful if your customer service offices weren’t closed despite being advertised as open on your website and best no advised by yourself to contact them. I’ve been trying to speak to someone all day.
