Deterioration next to metal manhole

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 18:00, Sunday 28 August 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3785941.

Yesterday afternoon I was driving NW into London on the A20 Sidcup Road. I changed lane from outside to inside over the problem area and it ripped my front left/near-side tyre open. I managed to find a safe place to pull over and fill with Holts Tyre Weld. The tyre is ruined and needs replacing, so please can you send me the details to send the bill to, in order that I get reimbursed? This is an extremely dangerous hazard and needs fixing immediately.

Kind regards and thank you in advance,

Mr Philip Chalk 07887550073
