Dangerous potholes

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 13:35, Friday 17 March 2023

Sent to TfL 3 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS4325058.

I drive from Watford to NW3 6DT every day.

Recently I have experienced driving over potholes at the location stated and image below. I have started to avoid this stretch and not use the slip road due to the fact that I do not want to damage my car.

Please can you escalate a repair ASAP?

My car has already been damaged by repeatedly driving on this stretch of road and cost me to re align my vehicle.

Direction of Travel: South bound from M1 onto A406

Location: HQFC+78 London, UK

  • On 21st February circa 12:30-1pm, whilst exiting the M1/Staples Corner, on the slip road heading towards Brent Cross shopping centre I hit an enormous pot hole that could not be avoided. I was hoping that there was no damage to my car but yesterday (4/4/23) when I had tyres replaced the report I was given stated the NSF lip of the wheel had a Big Buckle. Obviously I am concerned about this and would like to know what the process is to repair or replace my wheel. Thank you Valerie Osborne. [email protected] 07522 405470
