Pothole on Exit Road to Tesco Superstore, Oldfields Road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 10:57, Sunday 12 March 2023

Sent to TfL 3 hours, 52 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS4303256.

Pothole reported over 2 months ago is still not repaired. The pothole is near the pedestrian traffic lights crossing the entrance road to the Tesco Superstore located just off Oldfields Road (opposite Stayton Road). The pothole on the egress is a 2m long gouge about 10/20cm wide and deep enough to be a hazard to motorbikes. The pothole appears to be within the pink area on your map and so seems to be a TfL responsibility. If this is not the case, please advise me immediately and who you consider is responsible. (NB. I previously reported both this pothole on the egress and a second pothole on the ingress on 31/12/22. You repaired the latter in January but the pothole on the egress remains. This is despite my e-mail of 8/1/23 to TfL Customer Services thanking you for filling in the ingress pothole but stating that the egress pothole had not been filled in.)
