Large potholes danger to cyclists and drivers

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 22:16, Sun 27 March 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3419953.

Large potholes in the road between 84 and 86 London road, a danger to cyclist and vehicles. There was recently an accident where a car came off the road here and smashed into the traffic light pole. It’s a very dangerous bend and these pot holes have been there for over a year and are only badly repaired with temporary fillings and thus keep coming back. One of the smaller potholes next to a manhole cover was fixed two weeks ago, maybe by Thames water (?), but the main potholes still remain. Tfl should fix it properly instead of patching it up with temporary fills from time to time.
