Pothole in right hand lane (of two)

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:13, Tuesday 3 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4079554.

Pothole deep enough to puncture my tyre, and others, which needed a 24hour repairer to allow me to continue to work. It’s on the eastbound carriageway of the elevated section of the A40 Westway, roughly where it starts to come back down to ground level. Repair of a nearly new (four weeks or so old) cost £350, which I think should be compensated for.

  • I ended up going through this pothole which has now been repaired. Car recovery had to come and pick up my car
