Depression next to the gulley outside house no. 249 Richmond Road (between Balmuir Gardens and Garmalt Gardens)

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 17:48, Mon 22 August 2022

Sent to TfL 2 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3773259.

This is a small, deep depression in the road. It is not easy to spot as the surface is largely unbroken. I didn't see it and rode over it on my bicycle and nearly came off the bike. I noticed from Google Streetview that this depression has existed since at least July 2021. It should have been repaired long before now but hasn't even been spray marked.
