Huge pothole

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 01:06, Thursday 12 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4116922.


I am reporting an incident whilst driving southbound on the Blackwall Tunnel on the 1st of January 2023 at 15:35. Car: black VW Golf reg: DM04MED

I have been driving through the tunnel going south bound with my 13months baby and family and had no chance to avoid this huge pothole. I was on the right lane with double white line seerating myself from the left lane and cars. This as a result has damaged my left anti roll bar and bushing and engine/gearbox mounts to misalign. My car now has a creaking due to the impact of the car. I want to be compensated for the damages as i heavily rely upon my car for work.

I have attached a dashcam footage of the time of incident Timeline of incident 15:23:55seconds


Kind Regards

Ms Khatun.

I have dashcam footage, however your system does not allow for video footage to be uploaded.
