Patch Repair has broken out - Large Pothole

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:29, Thu 12 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4118081.

Hit the pothole today in lane two heading south bound - very loud bang to the car. Picture attached of previous patch repair. Section could do with resurfacing as this seems to be a re-occurring issue every winter.

  • I hit this pothole o Friday January 13th 2023 at 1.15pm. Blew out front nearside tyre and damage to rear nearside tyre requiring replacement. £500 of new tyres and wheels need straightening. How can I claim for this?

  • I hit the pothole twice today going southbound. The impact was so significant that it moved my steering wheel on both occasions. It also has caused other cars to actively swerve to change lanes and avoid it. It will cause a major accident if it isn't repaired soon. And it's also causing damage to vehicles.

  • I hit this pothole yesterday evening. Almighty bang to my car. Luckily no damage but could have been a lot different going by the comments on this post!

  • This is a very nasty pothole in the middle lane of the A3, southbound. I hit it around 7.15pm on 15 Jan and it destroyed my nearside front tyre. Dangerous. I would like to claim for the repair.
